Hi there!

I'm Derek Deng, and I'm a freelance beauty writer, a content creator, and a lover of Y2K fashion. I'm also a senior at Duke studying journalism and public policy.

I'm a big believer in the power of social media and the role that it plays in shaping culture. That's why I love to create and consume content: social media, to me, is a valuable way to engage with audiences and tell stories that genuinely resonate. And as a writer, I draw from my perspective as a content creator to dive into the trends and narratives that shape our digital society.

All things considered, my intersecting identities as a writer and a content creator have led to some amazing opportunities, from getting published in Cosmo to going backstage at New York Fashion Week for Byrdie. Feel free to peruse my stories and content snippets!
