Interview: How Ani Alexander, an Armenian immigrant, became a bestselling author by storytelling in her non-native language

Ani Alexander lived in the Soviet Union until she was 10 years old. Then she moved to five different countries, learned five different languages, and returned to Armenia in her 20’s. Ani had studied corporate finance and started working as a banker and then later an event planner. She loved it… until it started becoming her life. And she quickly began to realize that everything about her life was suffering except her career. Then she found her talent for storytelling and passion for writing in English – her non-native language.
