This is the story of Grace Reyes. She is the President of the Association of Asian American Investment Managers (AAAIM).
In this episode, you'll hear about Grace's journey. She immigrated from the Philippines and grew up in California's Central Valley, raised in Stockton by a single mother with her two younger siblings. She got a degree in Economics from UCLA and went on to get her MBA from UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business. Over the last two years, Grace has done such a wonderful job of marketing and strengthening AAAIM's brand and has doubled corporate sponsorships since she joined.
She is one of the most self-aware people I’ve encountered. Grace inspires me to not fear judgment from others, to do what I feel passionate about and ultimately to spend precious time with people that genuinely support who I am. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Grace!
