Hello! My name is Alex Tran, and this blog is about sharing the best fitness fashion, yoga and travel news with you.
Who Am I?
I grew up in Houston, Texas and then unexpectedly moved to California in 2001. I fell in love with the beautiful California weather. My fitness journey began when I picked up my first weight in body pump. From there I tried a yoga class and fell in love immediately with the results and ability to calm my mind during practice.
In 2013, I moved to Seattle, Washington to start a new life with my partner. I used the opportunity to reinvent myself! I did a lot of yoga and a path cleared for me to became a yoga instructor! I landed a gig at Nordstrom in their buying department and now aim to provide customers with the BEST products that fit their needs and lifestyles. I thought life was great but I was still missing something. I wanted to change the world.
I grew up maneuvering the foster care system and became notoriously resourceful amongst my friends and family. After my emancipation I pursued a Bachelors Degree in Psychology with hopes of becoming a Social Worker. I began my Masters Program in Social Work and through my internship I discovered that my passion has been in changing the foster care system at the administrative level. I then completed my Masters in Public Administration and worked in the public sector to change our communities at the systems level. Now I run my own organization, The Moovment. At The Moovment, we stand for moving towards resilience beyond trauma and unfortunate circumstances through the discovery of self-empowerment and building self-esteem.
All the while, I’ve been known to snag unfathomable deals on fashion and travel. I enjoy traveling, going to festivals, sharing product reviews, being a yogi and most importantly, helping other recognize their own potential. I hope that my blog will inspire you and help you find the newest and best fashion finds.
