Managing Literary Editor
Pearl Leung (she/her) is a writer and digital marketer based in Toronto, Ontario. She believes that change lies at the intersection of art, literature, and journalism. The ability to tell a compelling story — one that changes hearts and minds — is crucial to amplifying voices, uplifting communities, and bringing us closer to a more just, equitable world for all. Pearl cares deeply about freedom of expression; citizens and journalists alike ought not to be punished for speaking about what’s happening in their communities. She has always been passionate about storytelling in all its forms, and she joined The Matchstick with the hope of shining light on the stories that many don’t get the opportunity to tell. In her free time, Leung can be found spending time with her loved ones, satisfying her thirst for knowledge, or lurking on Twitter.
