At 24, Alicia Chew is already a seasoned Internet expert.

A native of Northern Virginia, Chew launched her first website when she was just 10 years old and specialized in web and graphic design in high school. Many websites later, Chew decided to launch her first fashion-oriented website – River City Chic – while she was a communications student at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).

Now graduated and back in the DC metro area, Chew has transformed River City Chic into AliciaTenise.com and, in turn, has become one of the area’s leading fashion bloggers.
