Hi, I’m Winona.

I’m a copywriter currently based in Singapore.

I have 7 years of experience on local/regional/global accounts, with a strong interest in ancient history & humanising digital spaces.

I was listed as one of Singapore's most awarded creatives both in 2021 and 2020, awarded Copywriter of The Year award in 2021, and my work has been awarded at festivals like the One Show, Clios, D&AD and Cannes Lions — but the highlight of my career has to be when I managed to connect victims of marital rape to counsellors in their state.
