Before opening the preschool, Yang worked in the United Arab Emirates as an assistant manager for a construction machinery company, and in Kenya for a tour and travel agency. Because of her experiences working in different countries and opening a preschool in a culturally diverse area, Yang said she wants her students to share their cultures with one another and wants to share her worldly experiences through multi-cultural programs at the Goddard School of Lexington.
