About

Michelle Toh

Hi!

Iโ€™m a journalist at CNNMoney in Hong Kong.

Here at CNN, I produce and program multimedia content, write about business news in Asia and work with our newsrooms worldwide to present our reporting in different ways and reach as many people as possible across platforms.

Before joining CNN, I was the Hong Kong editor of Fortune Magazine.

I was born in Malaysia and raised in Hong Kong. I'm also a proud graduate of USC's Annenberg School of Journalism (fight on!), and member of the Asian American Journalists Association.

My work, which has been featured in outlets including TIME, USA Today and Harper's Bazaar, has allowed me to interview newsmakers from all walks of life, from Hong Kong billionaire Lui Che Woo to unaccompanied child migrants in the U.S. to one of the worldโ€™s youngest female VCs.

In my spare time, I enjoy checking things off what I call the #GreatAmericanBucketList, learning new skills and spending an exorbitant amount of time on Instagram.
