Originally from Jakarta, Marcella is a fourth generation Chinese Indonesian who can’t function without her morning coffee.

Despite excelling in all things science, she went to study Arts and accidentally dabbled into writing. After graduating from her Bachelor’s degree, Marcella worked as a content writer at both nonprofit and corporate settings before throwing in the towel to get a Master’s in Publishing and Communications. Most recently, she’s taking a year off to spend time with her family before tying the knot.

In 2013, Marcella wrote and self-published a short memoir on her life after graduation, Swimming with The Sharks. She currently lives in Melbourne, where she’s counting down the days on the publication of her first published book.
