At VICE News Tonight, Yeung was the first foreign correspondent to embed with coastguards in Libya?s migrant smuggling epicenter and meet the migrants caught up in the system. Yeung has covered a wide range of global stories at VICE, including recent coverage of the aftermath in a fragile Philippine community where ISIS laid siege, the crippling state of Assad-controlled Syria, and the Islamic State?s impact on Iraq?s youth. Yeung has been nominated for an Emmy award and has won a Gracie and Front Page award for elevating Afghan women?s rights struggles that fell out of the headlines.
