::WAVING HAND EMOJI::
Former Texan-turned-New Yorker, Chinae Alexander is an entrepreneur, lifestyle personality, writer, speaker, and wellness expert based in Brooklyn, New York. Her message is to empower people to be better through positive thinking, active change, self-love…with a lot of laughing and curse words along the fucking way (see what she did there?!).
In addition to talking about her deep inner dislike of kale publicly in front of thousands on the internet, Chinae owns a successful event planning company, has a new YouTube channel, is in the first stages of her first book, and is creating your soon-to-be favorite podcast. When she’s not trying to change the world, you'll find Chinae pondering if a runner’s high is actually a “thing”, while enjoying a glass of malbec and a nice salad*.

Also, it's weird to write about yourself in third person so I'm really sorry about that guys. I'll make it up to you next time.
Becoming an Instagram personality for me, was a complete accident. I was interviewing for a social media position at a fitness company so I made a "wellness" IG account to show that I had an interest in the field. Turns out I didn't get the job I WANTED, but instead found the passion I NEEDED. I'm honored to share and swap stories daily with people from all around the world, and can I just say...I'm really, really glad I didn't get that desk job.
My entrepreneurial life started in a Greek diner on 33rd and Lexington over lukewarm coffee and even more lukewarm scrambled eggs, a story I'll make you buy my book to read (told you I was an entrepreneur...). The Cliff Notes version is that when I started working for myself, I knew that PEOPLE were going to have to be my focus. Through my passion for others, I founded a successful event planning company and now am focused on growing my personal brand on the interwebs and beyond.
One of my favorite things about what I do is being a spokesperson for brands I truly believe in. We all consume marketing whether we want to or not, my goal is for it to suck a little LESS while being a LOT more authentic. Telling true stories and creating better content is something we all have a responsibility to do, and I love working with like-minded partners to achieve that goal. If that sounds like something that you're interested in, head on over HERE.
Despite the fact that I once almost lost my index finger while filming an on-camera cooking segment, and barely kept from falling off stage in front of 350 people at a speaking engagement in Scottsdale, AZ...being a speaker and on-camera host is one of my favorite things to do. I speak live and on-camera about subjects spanning from creating community to body positivity, entrepreneurship, social media, and of course...girl power.
