About Wyatt Ong
Wyatt works on the Life and Style and Entertainment sections for Rappler.
The unique space allows her to straddle two passions: business and the arts. To her, there is no difference.
She graduated magna cum laude from Ateneo de Manila University in 2010 with a degree in Management and a minor in English Literature. She was active in the school’s literary publication Heights, where she was Associate Editor, and was a fellow in the 8th Ateneo National Writers Workshop. She is one of the recipients of the Loyola Schools Award for the Arts in the poetry category.
After college, she began her career in the fast-moving consumer goods industry, cultivating a growing passion for research and numbers while spending most of her time immersed in the retail environment.
Her interest in operations management and process flow design would reapply itself following a career change to media. She was first Online Editor of iammeg.ph, and then Deputy Editor at meg magazine, a lifestyle publication for young Filipinas.
In 2014, she joined Rappler, where she can be found covering everything from local beauty pageants to international singing sensations.
