Meet Corvida Raven.

The mohawk wearing twenty four year old has dubbed herself ‘The Oprah of The Web’, and for good reason. Just like Oprah uses her show to educate the masses on different things to make their lives easier, Ms. Raven does the same thing with technology.

She’s making history because there’s not a ton of women, and even less women of color, making careers in technology. She blogs, consults with companies, is the cofounder of Everything Twitter and the Social Geeks podcast. Her website shegeeks.net is a includes social media tips, reviews of apps and tutorials.

FAB Girls historically have shied away from careers in science, math and technology, and  it’s refreshing to see Ms. Raven put such a cool, FAB face on an industry where we’re underrepresented.

    Congrats to Corvida! If you are interested in math, science or technology, don’t let being a girl stop you. I hope she changes the tech game.
