About Me

My name is Rachel Yeo and I am a journalist adept in writing, photography, videography, social media, research and graphic design. 


I’m currently an economy reporter for the South China Morning Post, covering  a wide range of topics concerning Hong Kong's economy - including economic repercussions from Covid-19, consumer issues, tourism, logistics, retail, and start-ups.


Previously, I was a news intern at The Wall Street Journal and South China Morning Post, and covered the Hong Kong protests and the Covid-19 pandemic extensively.

During my university days, I was also the deputy editor for The Young Reporter, an English news publication based in Hong Kong Baptist University.

I have a bachelor's degree in Communication (Honours) from Hong Kong Baptist University, majoring in International Journalism and graduating with First Class Honours -- with a double minor in Political Science and Sociology. I also have a diploma in Mass Communication from Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Singapore.

Aside from Hong Kong and Singapore, I have also done journalism and photography work in Singapore, Rwanda, China, Brazil, New Zealand and other countries. 

I hope to inspire and create awareness about important social issues through my work.
