Malia Hagen is an introverted people-person and an analytical creative who lives in San Diego with her husband and son. Writing about her real life—the experiences, challenges and joys—is what makes her come alive and working as an accountant is what pays the bills. She not only wants to share her stories, she wants to hear yours too. You can read more from Malia at TheStoryofHagens.com or interact with her @maliahagen on twitter and instagram. What she’d really love is if you invited her out to coffee when you’re in San Diego, because real life connection wins at everything!
