Grecia Chantalle Saldaña González
Her linguist father motivated her to major in modern languages at the Universidad De La Salle Bajío in León, Mexico, located 420 km away from her hometown, Tepic, Nayarit, located in the pacific coast of Mexico. Acquiring multiple languages has allowed her to participate fully in an increasingly diverse society and to understand the mindsets of people in different regions of the world. Her interest in cultures outside her own led her to become an exchange student at York University (Toronto, Canada) and a year later at Universidade Feevale (Novo Hamburgo, Brazil).
As a Hansen Summer Institute Fellow 2014, Grecia is committed to social entrepreneurship and international cooperation, and she is certain that generating positive impact is vital in order to improve healthcare, education and the living conditions in countries throughout the world.
Her previous professional experiences include international organizations such as the International Juvenile Justice Observatory, based in Murcia, Spain; and EBAN – European Business Angels Network, located in Brussels, Belgium. Moreover, she participated in GIMUN – Discover the International Geneva program in 2016, which included Trainings at United Nations Headquarters, Geneva; the International Environment House and the ICRC.
After having lived in 7 different countries and more than 10 cities worldwide, Grecia is now settled in Lyon, France where she manages Tiime’s social media pages and collaborates with the team to establish an efficient communication strategy that can reflect Tiime’s essence and vision: A world where social impact is consciously and systematically embraced by organisations and individuals alike.
