Jeremy Hsing

Jeremy Hsing is an Entertainment and News Media Apprentice in RespectAbility’s National Leadership Program for Spring 2023. RespectAbility is a nonprofit organization fighting stigmas and advancing opportunities so that people with disabilities can fully participate in all aspects of community.

Hsing is a humanistic sci-fi writer, mental health advocate, and second-gen Taiwanese immigrant based in L.A. He specializes in using his psychology background (B.A. in Psychology and double minor in art history and film from UCLA) to construct elaborate worlds in which his characters are forced to experience an internal reckoning and question their morality in the pursuit of an emotional catharsis.

Hsing’s past experiences include being Editor-in-Chief of his high school newspaper and having his first screenplay that he ever wrote selected to be produced by the UCLA Film Summer Institute. He has also written, produced, and directed two short films that combine magical realism with intergenerational trauma, titled Iridescence and Fish. Additionally, he was awarded the Leon Silverman Scholarship at the 2022 Academy Gold Graduation ceremony and paired with Lee Isaac Chung for a mentorship through the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.

Hsing was previously a Get Lit Screenwriters Lab Fellow, RespectAbility Entertainment Lab TV Writing Fellow, and Coverfly Best Unrepped Writers List 2022 Honoree. In his free time, he loves to listen to Kendrick Lamar due to his lyrical exploration of intergenerational trauma and toxic masculinity. He looks forward to being a sponge and learning from the RespectAbility team about disability advocacy and consulting to help tell authentically inclusive stories.
