Alina may be a software engineer here at Birchbox, but this talented lady wears many hats. In school, she not only majored in math, but she also was the co-captain of the dance team, a peer tutor for the math department, and the recruitment chair for her sorority. Plus, she’s also a certified scuba diver, played trumpet and piano as a child, and recently joined the Daughters of the American Revolution with her mom and grandma. Wow! Read on to learn more about this Jill of all trades.
Alina Valero, Software Engineer
Hometown: Princeton Junction, NJ
Unofficial role: Stater of the Obvious
Fun fact: I own more tubes of lipstick than pairs of socks
Beauty confession: I’m terrible about throwing out makeup when it gets old, even if I’ve stopped using it. I just get attached!
Currently loving: American Apparel Disco Pants
Worth the splurge: Pedicures.
Best beauty trick: I wear lipstick ever day, which can be drying, so I used my heaviest eye cream on my lips to keep them hydrated. It absorbs way better than most lip balms.
