TEDxHKUST - Yvette Jong - ADD of an American-born Chinese

Yvette is not just your "cool, calm and collected" New Yorker in Hong Kong, but so much more. There is a never a dull moment with her - her passions are so varied that she has a wall full of ideas and to-do lists that are miles long. She is a globetrotter at heart and has worked in hospitality for 13 years, wearing many hats in the private and non-profit sector after graduating from Cornell University. She has most recently started her own company offering creative and operational strategies in the lifestyle and hospitality sectors. She also runs a blog discussing the good, the bad and the ugly. Other passions: to be a philanthropist/ jeweller/ ranch owner. Her next dream holiday: a cattle drive. Told you, no dull moments.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
