Hey @alexisohanian, you *likely* won't remember this, but we met at a Super Bowl party in Harlem in 2011. Random? YES. I asked for your help wiping spilled beer off my back. You obliged, and we chatted for a minute. I was a flight attendant then, but now I'm in tech. 1/10
Meeting you,@alexisohanian, and @hueypriest at that party was one part of the catalyst that got me into the tech industry. I met REAL people who built an awesome thing that people LOVED. You brought tech into a reality for me in a way that my non-famous nerd friends did not. 2/10
I quit being a flight attendant to attend a full-stack bootcamp a few years after that Super Bowl party, and am now doing what I love as a woman in #tech. @alexisohanian, you helped inspire me, and I am hoping you're willing to inspire more #womenintech 3/10
@alexisohanian, you just (re)tweeted that your amazing, accomplished wife @serenawilliams will soon join the ranks of #womenintech! (And @karliekloss is jazzed as well!) That is inspiring to women all over the world! 4/10
Since starting working in tech, I’ve felt an overwhelming urge to give back and lift up other #womenintech. I have been a volunteer with @chicktechorg since I started my first job as a developer. We are committed to… 5/10
“Supporting women and girls in tech with community, education, and inspiration.” Last year, @chicktech.org served 8,000 girls and women at 250 events with 1500 amazing volunteers in 27 locations in North America. 6/10
Our major corporate sponsor unexpectedly closed their foundation, leaving us without bridge funding as we search for a new sponsor. @alexisohanian, you could help us find that corporate sponsor and allow us to continue our mission to serve #womenintech and #girlsintech 7/10
While I would love to ask for short-term financial support, @alexisohanian, for the #RallyforChickTech campaign, I am publicly requesting for some of your time. I would love to tell you about the impact we have made in the lives of #womenintech… 8/10

Would you take a meeting with me and the CEO of @chicktechorg to find a way we can work together to continue to empower women and girls in tech? 9/10
My email is maigen.thomas@chicktech.org and I would love to hear from you, your team, or the person who gets you coffee! (Especially if @serenawilliams is the one bringing you coffee, she is #AMAZE!) 😍😍😍

hey, @hueypriest would love to reconnect with you, too!
