Heidi Yeung

Heidi Yeung: a short bio

I was born in Hong Kong and I lived here until I was six-years-old, at which point I moved to Taipei and attended an American international school for two years. My concept of time was a bit foggy, but I think I returned to Hong Kong when I was about eight or nine. I went to an international school in Kowloon for what must have been less than a year, before moving to Sydney shortly after my 10th birthday. Australia is where I did most of my growing up, and a part of me will always consider that place my second home, and the people I met during this time my extended family.

In Sydney, I first attended St. Catherine’s for primary school, before moving onto St. Clare’s College for high school. After I had completed my Higher School Certificate and graduated, I returned to Hong Kong. After a stint in retail, I commenced my tertiary studies at Lingnan University, and graduated with a BA (Hons) in History with a minor in English.

Following my graduation, I took a year off to work and to work out my next step. In this time, I worked at Media Monitors as a post production assistant, and then at Fluid as an editorial assistant. At the beginning of 2010, I began a six month internship at Time Out Hong Kong magazine, which solidified my ambitions to become a writer.

(The full story of how I discovered and pursued my passion for writing can be found here.)

I have completed the Master of Journalism programme at the Journalism and Media Studies Centre at The University of Hong Kong, and I’m looking forward to what the future brings.
