Isobel Yeung is a multi award-winning correspondent for VICE News. She joined VICE in 2014 after working in China for four years, where she reported and developed shows for several Asian and U.K. TV channels, and wrote for notable international publications including The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Independent and South China Morning Post.ÃÂ
Yeung has reported from nearly every war zone throughout her deployments for VICE News, documenting conflict and crisis in Yemen, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Turkey, the Philippines and Afghanistan. At VICE News Tonight, Yeung's compelling reportage has covered a wide range of global stories, including the battle with ISIS across the Middle East and the Philippines and the crippling state of Assad-controlled Syria, as well as some of the most polarizing issues in the United States such as sexual consent during the age of the #MeToo movement. As the first correspondent to embed with Libyan coastguards and meet the migrants caught up in the system, her journalism earned two Emmy nominations for exposing the country as a migrant smuggling epicenter.ÃÂ
She describes her months-long undercover report from China as one of the most harrowing assignments of her career, revealing a look inside Chinese authorities' heavy-handed, systematic oppression of the Uighur Muslims. Yeung's fearless and raw reporting is the first of its kind from the region offering the most-extensive look into an on-going human rights crisis.ÃÂ
Yeung landed two Emmy award wins for her unprecedented access to the frontlines of Yemen's humanitarian crisis. She has also earned two Front Page awards and a Gracie Award.
