My name is Heidi and I’m the Founder of TheAmbitionista.com (formerly known as TheSuccessfulStyle.com). I started this blog in 2013 as an avenue for me to showcase the fact that yes, ambitious, seriously intelligent, work-focused professional women need not be boring nor unfeminine. I’m a girl and believe that looking fabolous while conquering the world is a right. When I’m not blogging on TSS, I’m managing Blogger Babes, a blogging network and company I founded with my partner-in-crime, Ponn Sabra. I’m also an author, public speaker and naturally, a working woman advocate. I live by the beach in Santa Monica, CA.

I was born in Malaysia and I live and worked in London, New York, Hong Kong, Tokyo and no L.A. I seriously don’t know what sort of accent I have.
I was (and still am sometimes) awkwardly shy around people I jsut met. a good trick someone taught me is to just smile a lot and ask them lots of questions.
I don’t drive in LA. I rely on kindness of strangers. well not really. I just Uber it everywhere.
I love cats. one of my fantasies is to have a kitten shower. Yes, I want to have actual kittens falling over me like warm fuzzy rainfall.
