Hi, I'm Angela J Kim.

I'm a published writer, lifestyle blogger and content creator.

Currently I work as a full time blogger and content creator at Mommy Diary, a popular parenting lifestyle blog that reaches over 1 million monthly viewers.

Like many writers out there, I've been reading & writing pretty much my whole life. I was fortunate enough to have some of my work published in Asian American anthologies, cultural readers and literary journals. 

As a blogger and influencer, I work with global lifestyle brands like Starbucks, Disney, Samsung, Kia, Toyota, Kelloggs, Nordstrom and Target to create content that is authentic, storytelling and impactful to the audience.

I'm also a regular contributor for TODAY Parents, Healthline and Huffington Post

I have a M.A. in English. I studied literature not because I like theory or structure, but because I'm fascinated by the beauty & power of words. Before becoming a full time blogger, I taught freshman composition at Cal State Polytechnic Pomona, published scholarly and motherhood articles, worked as a copywriter and raised my 3 children.

When I'm not reading or writing, you can find me spending time with my family, cooking, practicing yoga and mediation, working on DIY projects or catching up on Korean dramas while cleaning like a madwoman. Most of the time, you'll see me capturing inspirations in my notebook, writing on my laptop or taking photos of my family. Nowadays as an influencer I spend a lot of time in front of the camera too but my true passion lies behind the camera. :)

My personal and professional passions include women empowerment, honest storytelling, postpartum depression advocacy, special needs parenting, family travel, DIY projects, home decor and all things motherhood.
