Honey Tey, or 郑婉慧, was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Following her family, she immigrated to United States when she was nine in search of a better educational opportunity. While she had grown up in a great community, the lack of diversity disconnected her from her cultural background. Though this is her first pageant, she is grateful for the opportunity the pageant has provided to honor her roots and celebrate her heritage. She hopes to make further connections that will allow her to contribute more toward the Asian-American community in America.

Currently, Honey is a freshman majoring in American History with a concentration in Pre-law at DePaul University. She has been accepted into DePaul’s honors college as well as Pathway Law Program. She plans to become involve in the competitive Mock Trial team and Student Government Association in order to continue to promote positive change in the school community. Additionally, she will continue her internship at Richard F. Blass & Associates, LLC.

As an adventurous and aspiring Defense Attorney on the journey to success; despite many obstacles she has faced, she remains focused and outspoken with a strong sense of determination.
