About Rin-rin

Hello, my name is Rin-rin Yu

Welcome to Rin-rin’s no-frills website!

She is currently the editor-in-chief at Howard University, leading the award-winning Howard Magazine and news/information website, The Dig.

She is also principal and co-founder of the Silver Media Group, a strategic marketing and content consultancy.

Rin-rin is an alumna of several companies, including WashingtonianHanley Wood Business Media (now Zonda)WHDH-TV 7NewsABC News, the Advertising Research Foundation, and the National Association of Home Builders. She has also served as a close consultant for several others, including the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (currently as editor of its online magazine, Volta Voices).

Born and raised outside New York City, Rin-rin currently lives in the Washington, D.C. region with her little family. She enjoys taking pictures and traveling the world, usually simultaneously. See her photography at RedKiteStudios.net. (Older blogs include My Travel Hats and An American in America, but it got expensive to maintain all these domains). She is currently working with a book agent to publish her first novel, a middle-grade fiction book about a Chinese-American girl in suburban New York that might sound an awful lot like her own childhood.
