Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Given the chance, what advice would you give your younger self? We asked journalist, photographer and One World Media award winner, Yen Duong to take a trip down memory lane and share the advice she wishes she’d received as a young journalist.
Yen Duong is a Vietnamese journalist and photographer currently based in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. She has documented stories from the trauma of Palestinian teens being kept under house arrest in East Jerusalem, home demolitions in the Bedouin communities in the oPt, and young Vietnamese girls being trafficked and sold to China, to the impact of rapid urbanization on marginalized communities in southern Vietnam and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Her works have been published by Reuters, Bloomberg, the Guardian, Al Jazeera, South China Morning Post and more
