Fresh from attending the National Press Foundation's training program on international trade last month, Cathy Yang is set to share her learnings to her fellow Kapamilya journalists after she was invited by ABS-CBN University to become a guest lecturer.

In a special learning session called "World War Trade," happening on July 12, the ANC anchor and managing editor will be speaking, from the Philippine perspective, about the political and socio-economic stories on the trade war between the U.S. and China.

"Am not really one to mentor within the four walls. Because my four walls is the world out there, right down the trenches, where the stories reside, thriving with my fellow news junkies, hauling stories out. But here's one where the walls come off as we all hunker down to visualise World War Trade," Yang said in an Instagram post Wednesday about her inaugural lecture at ABS-CBN University.
