Debbie Kuan

After teaching English in Tokyo in 1997 through the PiA Osawa Fellowship, Debora returned to Asia as a Fulbright scholar to Taiwan in media arts and creative writing. While there, she experienced the worst earthquake Taiwan has seen in a century, learned to ride a moped, and ate her first pig's blood ricecake and colon soup. She also reported and wrote magazine features for a Taipei bimonthly on social and cultural issues such as rabid Hello Kitty mania and the rise of eating disorders among Taiwanese women. When she returned to the States, she landed a gig as the Asia editor for an international news and affairs magazine in New York. In 2002, she packed up her NY shoebox and headed to an even more exotic locale, Iowa, to study poetry at the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop, where she became enamored by corn siloes and prairie fires, among other things. She recently returned to Princeton to work with ETS, where she creates and develops test items for the bane of all foreign students' lives--the TOEFL.
