Hi, I’m Ali. I’m a wife, mama, career woman, and now a fashion & lifestyle blogger. I was born in Portland, Oregon and later raised in Phnom Penh, Cambodia for eight years; where I got the opportunity to learn about my heritage and culture. I met my husband online in 2012 and now we live in Southern Oregon with our two beautiful kids and two little yorkies.
As a career woman, I chose to be a tech recruiter who hires talented software engineers that build big data technologies. I’m a bit of a tech geek myself so I can talk java, distributed systems and computer science fundamentals. But don’t make me write code, I couldn’t do it to save my life! Once my babies go to bed I turn on some tunes and write about my other passion: fashion & lifestyle.
For years, I’ve wanted to do something in fashion but never found my calling. Until one night, I had an epiphany. My strengths and passions have always revolved around styling outfits, sharing my thoughts and feelings, working the camera, understanding technology and having strong business acumen. Boom… The Ali Effect was created.
During this new adventure, I hope you find inspiration through my style and also relate to life’s ups and downs. I’m all about empowering other women to be the best they can be and I believe it starts with looking great and feeling great.
Lastly, I look forward to building relationships with my readers and other bloggers so if you have any feedback I’d love to hear it. Thanks for the support, guys!
