Lusha Chen graduated from Boston University, class of 2013, with her masters in broadcast journalism. Her multimedia skills, as a news anchor, videographer, editor and cameraperson, have taken her around the world.
Lusha grew up in Guangzhou in southern China, a port that 300 years ago was the sole point of access between mainland China and the rest of the world. In 2011, she set sail for Boston, another coastal city known as “the Hub.” While there she covered the Boston Marathon, the 2012 election and the Clinton Foundation Annual Meeting. The stories Lusha produced have covered a broad range of subjects from spinal cord injuries and pediatric brain tumors, to discrimination within the military, and a boat-building class in a Massachusetts public school.
In the last two years, Lusha has reported from the London Olympic Games for China Central Television (CCTV) and worked as an assistant producer at WHDH (NBC Boston) and in the communication division at UNICEF.
She speaks English, Cantonese and Mandarin fluently.
