Fiona Teng 鄧穎恆 is a Hong Kong-born, Bay Area-made, and New York City-based communications professional and writer. She has over 10 years of experience in marketing, content creation, and storytelling spanning the non-profit, private, and public sectors. Her professional highlights include a Zipcar campaign video with over 274,000 views, a widely-used physics curriculum for middle schoolers, and the first-ever fully designed annual report for an NYC-based nonprofit.
Fiona's personal favorite non-fiction pieces include this piece on the Afro-Asian solidarity, a reflection on decolonizing her name (her Chinese name 鄧穎恆 is pronounced 'Dung Wing Hung' in Cantonese), and what it means to find grounding during Covid-19. She's also very proud to have been a strong advocate for student loan reform, sharing her experience at a U.S. Senate press conference and on Al Jazeera America.
Fiona's approach to poignant, succinct, and engaging storytelling is motivated by both her knack for spotting unique perspectives and connecting with the reader. Whether she's creating content from her perspective or someone else's, Fiona's ability to engage with her audience personally creates an emotionally and intellectually compelling experience.
When she's not curating interesting quotes for her Instagram project, she's thinking about liberation politics, wandering the globe, and how to be a better plant parent.
It was an absolute joy to work with Fiona! She helped bring our content to life for our organization's brochure, and helped our team see the work that we're doing in a different way. Fiona truly is amazing and we look forward to working with her again in the near future.
