THIS GORGEOUS GO-GETTER DIVIDES HER TIME BETWEEN DOING INTERNATIONAL PHILANTHROPIC WORK, SCRIBING FASHION ARTICLES AND REARING THREE BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN; MEET GUNEL ALIZADE ISMAILOV - THE DEFINITION OF A DYNAMIC EMPLOI WOMAN!

Resume: "Currently I am the executive coordinator at Young Global Leadership Organization in NYC , where we work with juveniles from around the world and with various non-governmental organizations, including the UN. I am also a contributor to different magazines about fashion and NYC lifestyle, and am very passionate about modern art. I have been a New Yorker for over 12 years and think it is the best place to raise my three children."

Path to the Top: "I have been quite lucky to live in different countries throughout my life, but moving to NYC has helped me to find just the right balance. I am blessed with my wonderful family and amazing friends who support and understand me no matter what."

Defining moment: "Realizing that you CAN have it all (professional fulfillment, sparkling social life and a solid foundation for your most cherished possession: your family) if you are in NYC!"

Statement piece: "I own many emploi dresses and I never get tired of dressing them up or down. My favorite is the Lexington dress in black and white because it allows me to play with different shoes. I don't believe in the "boring-grey-suit-office-lady" so I let my inner rebel out with a little help from fun accessories, like a statement necklace or eye catching pumps."
