Things I’ve done, stuff I’ve written, and words of mine have been quoted in a few different places. Here are a few:
The Desi Wonder Woman profiled me during her Career series, where I talk about passion (how it’s not necessary) and how I got started as an entrepreneur and co-founder of Wanderoak.
Avenue Calgary featured several people promoting diversity in the local tech industry. I was featured for being a female co-founder of a design/dev studio (Wanderoak).
Ahmed grew up loving technology and taught herself how to program and design websites. She didn’t fully realize her interests were exceptional until she went to university.
I gave a Git focussed talk about deploying WordPress themes at WordCampYYC 2016. The talk also lightly touched on transparency when communicating and collaborating with clients on projects and using a staging environment to test your work on a live server. It was my first WordCamp talk and although there was room for improvement, people said kind words:

You can find the slides for the talk here.
A post I wrote about being yourself in the dating world was syndicated on a popular Muslim blog.
I gave a short presentation introducing Git and version c ontrol during Hack Night in Calgary for Chic Geek.
Aurooba did a wonderful job introducing repositories Git and Github. Thank you for sharing this information with us.
I wrote about and photographed the City Market in Edmonton, Alberta. They liked the post enough to link back to it from their own website.
I was featured in a Cool Careers video series by an Albertan non-profit promoting careers in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math). I’m in different videos in the series, but I like this one the best. There’s also this one I like, if you’re interested.
Remember: No one’s going to believe in you, if you don’t believe in yourself.
I took over the Snapchat account for The Tempest and spent a week exploring Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and introducing the audience to a lot of different and quirky Canadian things as well as geeky web developer things, with a good dose of jokes and nuttiness.
