Colleen Yang started her career in the Post Manhattan newsroom as a beat reporter for the upper-west side, specifically Morningside Heights.
She is 1/16 Japanese on her father's side, but for some reason tells people around the office that she's 1/4 Japanese.
Yang was assaulted by a fellow shopper on Black Friday, resulting in her falling into a three-week coma.
That shopper was secretary-turned-reporter Cindy Stopher.
When Yang awoke, she found she had psychic abilities- and promptly used her powers to have Stopher's boyfriend arrested.
Always looking to exploit talent, the Post promoted "Madam" Yang to psychic colomnist, though they have yet to see the full consequences of her "visions."
