Who  are  we?

Rice Magazine is staffed by a motivated international team of student writers, journalists and artists. Whether from Shanghai, Manhattan, Punjab, Seoul, or anywhere in between, our members all share a passion for Asian culture and a drive to express this passion to those around them.

One thing she loves about Rice is that it is a great chance for people, whether from Asia or not, to contribute to the understanding of the differences in cultures and customs while also providing an avenue to reassess common stereotypes.
