Fong was born at 24 week gestation at 1 lb 8 oz. Three months and 11 operations later, she was discharged from the hospital.

She was also captain of the school's Future Problem Solver's Team, which has won the state championship the last three years. In addition, she was a member of the school's swimming, volleyball and track teams.
