Macenstein’s “Mac Chick of the Month” (August 2009): Valeria Tignini
Welcome to Macenstein‘s “Mac Chick of the Month”. Each month we feature a different die-hard, Mac-loving girl who is (almost) as well designed as the Apple products they love. This month we present you with the lovely Valeria Tignini, an actress, fitness model, writer and painter who just happens to be a die-hard Mac Chick!
Val recently started her own online video-blogging community, ValSecrets.com, designed to give women ages 15 and up a way to connect and give each other advice on many situations, from the light-hearted to the earth-shattering. And of course, she couldn’t have done it without her Mac!
“I don’t know what I would do without my Mac Gear… I run my company through my iPhone and MacBook.”
“In a world where so many women are faced with jealousy, bitterness, and criticism from other women; ValSecrets.com is on a mission to create friendship, praise, and support.”
When launching a business time is money, and Val can’t afford to be worrying about tech support. “It’s important to me that everything is technically compatible and Macs give me that option – now if finding a man is that easy”.
We’re pretty sure that won’t be all that hard (unless she wants a good one, that is).

Truly a credit to Mac Chicks everywhere!
When it comes to her love of all things Apple, sometimes it can get a little competitive. “My dog barks at my iPhone sometimes because I give it more attention then her.”
