ALLY MAKI - Founder + Creative Director
A native of Kirkland, WA, Japanese American actress Ally Maki moved to Los Angeles when she was fourteen after being scouted by a talent manager in her hometown. After a decade of appearances in shows like “10 Things I Hate About You”, she also gained much acclaim for her role as the androgynous prodigy, Dr. Haru Tanaka on FOX’s “BONES” as well as starring as the fearless Min in the beloved feature film “Geography Club.”
Currently, you can catch Ally on TBS' hit comedy "Wrecked" as the hilarious and strong willed heart of the show, Jess, as brilliant scientist Mina Hess on “Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger"on Freeform and as Ikumi on the critically acclaimed “Dear White People.” Now, Ally is committed to her personal mission of redefining what it means to be an Asian American woman in the modern era and moving the conversation forward through unification and normalization. Beyond being incredibly vocal in her efforts to ensure representation is being recognized in Hollywood, she is also active in working towards her mission to help young women through organizations like GIRLS INC. Through all of her experiences, Ally counts the creation of AAGC as a defining moment and one of her proudest accomplishments.
"I never saw anyone who looked like me on TV when I was growing up," she says. "I wasn't represented in any way. I want [Asian girls] to be like, 'If she can do it, then I can do it, too.'" - Maki on Elle.com

GIRLS EMPOWER GIRLS - AAGC X PERIOD MOVEMENT
We believe there is nothing more powerful than girls supporting girls - especially when they are founded by an AAPI female powerhouse like #TEAMAAGC girl Nadya Okamoto. That’s why we are so proud to support Period Movement. Powered by Gen Z, this organization is changing the game when it comes to the stigma of women’s health and creating menstrual equity on a global level. We should no longer feel ashamed of our bodies and the power of being a woman.
A portion of the proceeds from every sale will be donated directly to Period Movement.
PERIOD is a globally youth-run organization that provides and celebrates menstrual health through service, education, and advocacy. Since its founding in 2014 by Nadya Okamoto and Vincent Forand, at the age of 16, PERIOD has grown to be the largest youth-run NGO in women’s health, and one of the fastest growing ones in the United States. The PERIOD network has addressed almost 400,000 periods through product distribution to menstruators in need, and registered over 230 campus chapters at universities and high schools around the US and abroad.
