Who is Alena Maze?
Dr. Alena Maze is an African American who is a mathematician just like her parents. She was born and brought up in the US.
Her ethnicity is from Africa and she faced a number of challenges in her childhood. Racism is something that was very common throughout her life.
Breaking barriers, Alena successfully completed her degree and became a mathematical statistician.
They spoke extensively about the purpose of life and how God has gifted it to them.
In May 2021, she became the first-ever African American to complete a Ph.D. in Survey Methodology and earned a doctorate.
“What’s a Survey Methodologist? Well, I’m a Survey Statistician, so specifically, I research the math behind surveys,” she said. “Suppose we want more information on how diabetes affects women ages 30-40, in order to develop better treatment courses. Well in a perfect world, we would like to send out a survey (i.e., a series of questions) to all women ages 30-40 with diabetes. However, this is not practical for many reasons. So instead we chose a smaller group (called a sample), say 2,000 women from that same population to represent the whole population of 30-40-year-old women with diabetes.”
Alena Maze is also a data analyst who owns a YouTube channel along with her husband Joe Lee. She is a mother to seven children and together they share various ideologies on racism and culture.
Alena Maze shares things about her work life and her life as a mother/wife. This includes videos that focus on budgeting for a homemaker, skincare tips, and maintenance of the home.

Alena Maze is, quite literally, a superwoman — seemingly capable of doing it all.
According to her remarkable story on PopSugar, the wife and mother fell in love with her husband, Joe Lee, when she was 13 years old. But time and chance made them lose touch. They reconnected again when they were a little older, but it took a second time of losing touch before they realized what they meant to one another. Finally, on their third serendipitous encounter, they gave their relationship another try.
Today, Maze and Joe Lee are married and have seven children in a blended family. But, she said, she wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
“Growing up, my mother helped to raise many children in the foster care system,” she said to PopSugar. “I always loved having lots of children around and knew I wanted to have many children of my own. My favorite part of being a mom is being able to live in the footsteps of my mother and my grandmother. I feel proud to have been handed down this motherhood title. I’m learning a lot from my own children and growing myself with the challenges and victories of motherhood.”
