Who is Sam ‘Tech Girl’ Wright?

Well, I’ll get to that in a minute. For now, here’s a highlights reel:

Before we chat about Sam (me) let’s take a look at the blog.

The blog:

How to monetise your blog

Tech Girl is a South African tech blog for women… but it is a bit more than that. It is a space where myself and some of my friends share our love for gadgets gaming and all things geek with you. We simplify the tech specs, provide “geek” lifestyle content and even throw in some gaming fun.


That’s me!

I’m a South African technology and content creator. I have a community of ladies who support content I create here on the blog, on my YouTube channel and across my various social networks. Here are some links:

A bit about me: After completing a BA Journalism and BA Honours degree in Communication Science I started working at YFM, one of South Africa’s biggest youth radio stations. I subsequently made the move to corporate, from there spending a good few years at an engineering firm and some time at a marketing agency before turning Tech Girl in to my full time gig. I’m a blogger but I’m also a YouTuber and now even try my hand at live streaming from time to time. I’m also the South African brand ambassador for Razer and am currently signed with Codered Esports who represent me in a talent capacity.

I have a passion for Esports

I was the brains and the hands that made Acer for Gaming and the 2017 Valkyrie Challenge possible. I’ve hosted numerous esports competitions in South Africa and internationally. These include the big ones like desk hosting and interviewing for PUBG Europe League 2019, Hosting Nintendo Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bro Ultimate European Championships, hosting an ESL stage at Gamescom 2017, Overwatch Contenders Europe, the Samsung Galaxy CSGO Championship and even the 2017 Crossfire Grand Finals in China. I get to travel the world sharing my love with esports with you, and that is pretty cool.

I also do some other media work

I write for RedBull Esports. I’ve popped up on most of the major television and radio channels in South Africa at some point chatting about gaming, technology and esports.

Right, now that you have a simple idea of what this place is and who I am, go read some rad stuff.

I'd love to chat to you some more.


I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
