Techgirl’s blog has grown in size and expanded into a YouTube channel and social following. She has utilised the platform to host events encouraging girls to learn and love tech and gaming as much as she does. Holding a BA Journalism and BA (Hons) degree in Communication Science, Sam started her career at popular youth radio station YFM before making a giant leap to an engineering firm. 

While here she started the blog as a way to connect with women who shared her passion for gadgets, gaming and tech. She has been published in Engineering News as well as Social Media Today internationally. She has featured on various television shows such as Real Talk with Anele and Kyknet as well as radio stations including 5fm, Good Hope FM and SAFM. Her goal is to utilise her platforms as a means to showcase technology and the opportunities it presents to women everywhere.
