28 y/o Queer Femme from Seattle, WA. Manager of Design for GeekGirlCon, eternal starving artist, Whovian, fatty, feminist, ~magical girl~, troublemaker, and the perfect candidate for costumed aggression.
The GeekGirlConnections schedule is live and I’d like to talk about it for a hot minute. I personally think a program like this is a very important step forward because it encourages women to pursue careers they previously thought were unattainable due to a lack of female presence in “geeky” careers. GeekGirlConnections breaks down the wall between attendees and guests and offers attendees the chance to get real world advice from people they look up to, and people who have the jobs they want. At the very least, I hope attendees realize that there are so many opportunities available to them and I hope they leave feeling empowered and inspired.
On Sunday, I will be hanging out in GeekGirlConnections (RM101) from 1:30pm to 3:00pm:
Graphic Design with the GeekGirlCon Design Team! Graphic Design is more than just making things look shiny. Join GeekGirlCon Design Manager, Tammy Vince Cruz, and Associate Design Manager, Rachelle Abellar, to discuss what it takes to start your career in graphic design!
Gail Simone, Ashley Eckstein, and editors from Dark Horse are just some of the incredible geeky professionals that will be there to answer your questions! I am honored to be able to be apart of the first year and to be in such good company. For more information about the program, please visit the link above. Pass it along. Encourage your friends and family to visit and make some connections. Whether you’re just starting out or you want to take your career to the next level, this is seriously an opportunity you don’t want to miss!
