Your Help

It’s with great pleasure (and amazement) that I say I have over 1500+ followers over 4 social media platforms, but I’d love to grow this even further, so that IT Girl can try to help one more girl out there into STEM and to grow a bigger network at the same time. So please share http://www.TashaITGirl.com on any platform you see fit, or if you have any ideas it would be great to collaborate with 🤓 Thank you x

What Apps Do I Use?

What Apps Do I Use_Monzo… A mobile bank that allows me to budget and track my spending, I get instant notifications when I buy something and can pay mobile contacts easily.

Spotify… Music on the go and good for in the car!

Peak… Bit of brain training

Google Maps… Have become very reliant upon!

Amazon… Love a cheeky mobile purchase!

HayDay… I do love games that I can build up levels, nerdy but fun, along with, Clash Royale!

OneNote… which I have saved on my OneDrive and can use on my iPhone and it updates onto my laptop.

Of course… all my social media accounts: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, WhatsApp!

My 10th Birthday Present

For my 10th Birthday I was allowed my own personal pay-as-you-go mobile… it was all I wanted and I was one of the first people in my class to get one, I was very excited. It is crazy to think that the iPhone was only a figment of Steve Job’s imagination and wouldn’t come out for another two years when I received this.

I remember the tiny black and grey screen with the pixelated text, using it to play snake on… you couldn’t even go on the internet and it wouldn’t connect to WIFI either. It is amazing to think how much technology has advanced since I received this phone 12 years ago, as well as, other fields that rely on technology to enhance their research and industry. Although, I do still miss the drama of the flip phone!

The user’s experience of technology has also changed dramatically, we no longer have to press the 2 button four times to get the letter ‘C’… we can choose to not even type anymore to construct a message. That mobile that I was given as a present, was an additional, and to an extent, unnecessary tool of contacting my friends and family (limited by credit), but now it isn’t just a tool. Our lives revolve around this online world that we hold in our hand.

So what will happen in another 12 years?
