Georgina Quach is a British-Vietnamese journalist. In 2020, she was awarded the Scott Trust Bursary by the Guardian and George Weidenfeld Bursary by the International Journalists’ Programme. She was a Bloomberg Financial Journalism Diversity Fellow in June 2021, and was awarded the Murdoch Scholarship by Oxford University in 2019. She specialises in technology, business and long-form features, celebrating the writers, activists and creative pioneers who are carving out their own space within mainstream media. She is also co-founder and co-creator of the Etym Quest YouTube channel, a platform dedicated to the weird and wonderful word origins of our everyday vocabulary.
Georgina has a first-class degree in English Literature from Oxford University, where she pursued science writing and eighteenth-century witchcraft in the West Indies. As a daughter of refugees, she feels passionately about giving displaced groups a voice, and illuminating the human faces behind the figures. Having taught herself data analysis and coding skills, Georgina looks forward to experimenting with technology and web tools in an ever-changing media landscape.
