MOLLY NOELLE CHEN

About

I am an American writer, musician and allover creative raised in Eastern Iowa. In 2018, I graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a BA in Anthropology and recently earned my MA at the University of Westminster in London, England.

As a bright, enthusiastic and energetic person, I can work both independently and as part of a team to achieve successful outcomes. I enjoy tackling challenges and working directly with people.

Music

Music has always been a huge part of my life, as I believe it is a fundamental part of the human experience and plays a huge part in bringing people together. I have experience in music performance, writing and arranging.

Writing

I have experience in academic, creative and journalistic writing and have covered a wide range of topics, including music and film reviews, artist interviews and more.

Creativity

I am always looking for more opportunities to learn and expand my skillset. In particular, I enjoy bringing people together through creative endeavours such as music, writing and film.
