As of now, Grace holds a job as a columnist for The New Yorker. She is also active in public speaking.

Dating A Boyfriend Or Girlfriend?

Well, for now, Grace has not revealed anything on her relationship status. So, it's like hitting the arrow in the dark to speculate that she is dating anyone. One of the reason's why Grace is hiding any information about her partner - if present - could be her struggle with gender identity.

In an interview in 2016, she briefly talked about not being able to identify herself. She stated,

I think at this phase in my life, there’s a particular weight on gender and trying to adequately communicate [that] I’m not a woman, but I’m not a man.

Grace, who doesn't categorize herself of any gender, first came out to her sister Lena. In the beginning, Grace enjoyed dating women and classified herself as a lesbian. But, at the same time, still felt a lot of shame and confusion about her body.

She only learned to accept her body after meeting transgender activist, Reina Gosset.

As Grace feels comfortable about herself now, she openly flaunts her hair that matches a man's appearance. However, she is yet to be open about her relationship and plans on getting married.

Net Worth

Keeping her personal life hidden from the world, Grace, who is at the age of 27, has also kept any facts about her professional life a secret. There is no information regarding her net worth or estimated earning.

It is only known that she got some financial growth with the publishing of her book titled The Fool in 2016. So, it's difficult to compare how successful she is in comparison to her sister's net worth of $12 million.
