Trendy Techie Turns Three!

This week marks the third year I’ve been adventuring as the Trendy Techie. Three years ago I launched Trendy Techie to start more conversations about young women in tech and share my stories from the inside as a millennial working and learning in the tech world. So much has happened in the past three years – I’ve completed three internships, taken dozens of classes, met hundreds of incredible innovators from around the world, and flown almost 100,000 miles.

Cheers to all the adventures we’ve gone on and all the adventures to come! Here’s a look back at some of my favourite moments from the past three years (click through to see the full galleries and posts).
