SAGE FRANCH

57_Sage_Profile.jpg

My name is Sage Franch.

 

I am a Trendy Techie.

When I was 10 I wanted to be a serial entrepreneur or, that failing, a rock star.

I work as a Technical Evangelist, Fashion and Tech Writer @ Trendy Techie, Web & App Developer.

I am proud of when girls tell me I’ve inspired them to give technology a try. The most powerful way to influence girls to join tech is to lead by example and be a role model, and thanks to Trendy Techie and my work with Microsoft I’ve had the opportunity to influence many girls across the world.

The biggest obstacle I have faced was distance, since I attend university 2000 km from home. Technology has made it easier to stay in touch, but sometimes streams of bits just can’t beat a real hug and face-to-face heart-to-heart. If I ever have the opportunity to work on teleportation devices, you can bet I will!

My advice to women is “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t – you’re right.” (Henry Ford) It’s beyond true, and as a woman in a male-dominated field you have to learn to be fearless. Say yes to opportunities that are beyond your skillset, and prove to yourself – and to others – that you are limitless.
