Yiqing Shao, Digital Editor at Boston Magazine

Yiqing Shao has been an editor at Boston magazine since 2012.

Yiqing double majored in journalism and English at Michigan State University and has a master's degree in publishing from Emerson College.

She's pro-Helvetica and speaks passable Mandarin and Spanish.
