I am an adventuress. I am passionate. I do not settle for mediocrity. I recognize that there is a vast world beyond my own experience. I enjoy embracing other cultures – new arts, new methods, new foods, new perspectives. I love to enjoy beautiful food. I strive to help others live life to the fullest. I love creating community and being part of community. I like collaboration. My career is international public health. My existence is for God, who is my love, my creator, my guide, my strength, my kindness, my success, my pleasure, my friend, my savior. He gives me identity and purpose. And secondly, my existence is for my husband, Hussein Alali, my love, my best friend, my support, my champion.
My name is Lee Margaret Alali, née Van Iderstine.
