Finalist in Parenting/Family


Alena Maze describes herself as “boring” on Twitter, though she should change that to “modest.” Alena is a “mother, mathematician, director” who, with her photographer husband Joe Lee, entertains 360K+ YouTube subscribers with daily “cinevlogs” that beautifully capture the life of a large multicultural family. Their MAZELEE channel and corresponding Instagram and Facebook pages make fans feel like a part of the family, experiencing all the ‘firsts’ in their six kids’ lives—like Joe taking son Ajedi for his first haircut at a black barbershop, which resonated with over 1.4M viewers. This year they welcomed a new addition to their mixed Black and Korean family, a daughter they call “The Baby” while searching for the perfect name.
