Ryan McMorrow was a China-based Fulbright Research Fellow. In his work documenting the lives of China’s peasant workers, he labored and lived in a Chinese foam factory, harvested wheat and planted rice on the plains of Henan, moved between construction sites, peddled fruit and ventured down into the coal-mines of Hunan. He has documented his stories on Chinadialogue.net, his well-received blog, amigrantslife.com and is now working on sharing the stories with a wider audience. Prior to starting the Fulbright Scholarship, he spent two years in Northern China living with local Chinese learning Mandarin. In 2011, he graduated from UCLA with a dual degree in East Asian Studies and Political Science.
