Cathy Yang quickly established her formidable and thriving career in journalism shortly after graduating from DLSU. She started out in ABS-CBN, then won the coveted “Most Outstanding Investigative Journalist” in 1997. This led her to a scholarship at the University of Cardiff at Wales in the U.K. which further expanded her global outlook. Yang went on to become anchor for Bloomberg Television Asia-Pacific for nearly a decade. She was also a Reporter-Presenter at the Hong Kong-based Reuters TV where she conducted live financial market reports and produced human-interest feature packages. She was a three-time winner of the Best News Presenter award at the prestigious Asian Television Awards from 2001 to 2003, making it an unprecedented achievement for that specific category. On top of that, the Filipino-Chinese Federation of Business and Professional Women in the Philippines recognized Yang as the most notable woman achiever in the field of media in 2008. Yang's multiple accolades in the international news community have become a shining example not only for aspiring female journalists in the Philippines, but across the Asian-Pacific region as well.
