  Grace Yang believes that everyone should have the opportunity to lead as fulfilling a life as possible. She is the Chief Trouble Maker at TEDxMontrealWomen, curating and encouraging speakers to step outside of their comfort zones to deliver their most compelling TEDx talk. As well, she leads a dynamic team of dedicated volunteers and attempts to foster a creative culture where everyone has the opportunity to grow and learn from each other.

When she is not thinking, working or dreaming about TEDxMontrealWomen, Grace can be found on the yoga mat trying not to fall on her face doing side crow.

Grace holds a CFA, an MBA from Ivey and a B.Math in Computer Science from UWaterloo, although she still can’t figure out how to save a file on her computer. She lives in Montreal and leads a crazy and wonderful life alongside her husband and two daughters, who help her out with her computer woes.

Grace cares about helping people reach their potential and giving them all the opportunities possible, so Artistri Sud is a great fit!
