Ali became involved with Exploration whilst studying English Literature at Queen Mary, University of London. Before taking on the role of editor-in-chief, she had previously been the editor for both the Oceania and Latin America sections, respectively. She has travelled extensively and has recently returned from a bucket list classic: The Great American Road Trip. Ali first got involved with Exploration because she felt it was time — having kept travel diaries since the age of four — to hone her writing style and to expand her horizons beyond the signature Moleskin notebook.
