Weiyu was born in the industrial city of Changchun and studied Economics in New York, where she discovered her passion for photography. Taking her now useless Economics degree, she stayed in New York and found meaning working in the photo departments of NBCUniversal, Hearst Magazines, and Gilt Groupe, during which time she also began focusing on portrait photography. In her spare time, she bothers her painfully normal black and white cat.
