About Me: Hi I'm Jenny, I am a 26 year old Engineering Graduate, now Technology Analyst in Dublin who loves playing sports and travel... and my dogs!
I am born and raised in the wonderful Dublin where I studied Mechanical Engineering in Trinity and I still live and work in Dublin today. I like to keep busy with various sports such as sailing, tag rugby and running, next year I hope to run my very first marathon in New York! I also like just chilling out on rainy days watching movies and new Netflix documentaries
My Work: Any problem that might be solved using technology then I can help. My job is to know all about the coolest new technologies out there and help to solve our energy crisis!
I studied Mechanical Engineering in college and I really loved all the cool things I learnt such as building guitars, engines and studying nature to see how we could recreate these structures. This whole time in college we got to discover all the latest technologies in different fields of working and so when I graduated I decided to work as a Technology Analyst!
This means that I can work in all these amazing different areas and use different technologies to solve problems. For the last two years I have been helping solve our energy crisis by providing ways to use our energy in a smarter way.
What I'd do with the money: I would use the money to host Women in STEM events because I think it's really important to make sure everyone feels like they can study STEM subjects
