Hello! I am Kalina (Jane Chen) Silverman. I am from Santa Monica, California, and travel often. Right now, I work in Singapore as a Fulbright Program Research Scholar in Singapore. I study "Bridging East-West Communications through Big Talk" and "Evaluating the Effects of Big Talk in Establishing Empathy Between Local Singaporeans and the Migrant Worker Population." I also work professionally as a model in Los Angeles and Singapore.
I care about telling stories and creating ideas that help broaden global and intercultural understanding. In 2012 I founded MIXED and in 2014, I created BIG TALK. During my time at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, I worked on documentary films in Ecuador and Germany about education and the Holocaust.
Passionate about music and the arts, I am interested in work on projects that bridge cultures through the use of education, art/music, and journalistic storytelling. During free time I like to stay active (biking, hiking, dancing, swimming, yoga, and tennis- right now I'm learning how to surf ), adventurous, and creative (working in my art journal, singing/songwriting, and playing the piano).
