  1. I should win because I’m the ultimate tech girl, this will benefit me so much. By empowering me it will help me empower my female peers too.

  2. Women are known to attain higher results than men, but that’s not where we’re running low. We (women) constantly have to demonstrate to men that we actually are good at “EVERYTHING”, besides what the world has decided women’s interests should be. Forgetting that decades ago, it was women who pioneered computer programming, but I’m just putting it out there. Again proving ourselves leads to even more serious results in digital and everything else 😉 So why should I win the Wired Women Conference ticket? Because I desire to be empowered by modern women, I believe in women and the power they have.

  3. I don’t think women in the digital industry are celebrated as much as their male counterparts and many educational institutions continue to treat all things digital and tech related as a male domain. I would love the opportunity to meet women who challenge this popular perception. I have only been working in the digital industry for 5 months and am determined to break through ‘barriers’.

  4. Would love to go to something like this, and as you say not everyone gets the chance to go to something this interesting.

  5. I’m a bit late to the party but I’m here to tell the world that you can, in fact, teach an old bitch new tricks (or tech, in this case). Although it’s going slowly, and age makes the brain fog thick, I’m teaching myself as much as I can in order to catch up and keep up with tech, in the hope that I’ll be able to help and encourage my tween daughter in all things tech as she grows up. And, of course, to help my business succeed by utilising the technological tools available to reach my business goals and empower other women like me to do the same.

  6. During recent twitchats on the Conference I’ve been asked if I’ll be there, or have been told that it would be great to meet me. Due to circumstances I can’t control, this win would open the door of opportunity and could be a physical presence instead of a virtual presence. (BTW, entering competitins is also my hobby 😉 )

  7. I am looking to have a charity initiative in the rural parts of my home (Limpopo Province); focusing on encouraging young black girls with potential and an interest in technology to go into IT and Computer Science. I am hoping exposure to an event like this can help build on the knowledge I have so that I am a better asset to the kids we’ll be working with. Networking with inspirational women like Enyonam Kumahor would be an absolute bonus! 🙂
