Real Life Geeks that Inspire Me

Hola brunch babes another Friday – we made it! Time for some more 5 Friday fun and today is the real life geeks who inspire me!

AshleyEckstein Ashley Eckstein
She is the creator of Her Universe and all around goddess of the Star Wars fandom. She made liking Star Wars main stream for girls. She is also the voice of Ahsoka Tano aka the Fulcrum aka the coolest girl inthe Star Wars universe (as of yet). I have so much respect for her and the light she brings. She truly is a lovely and kind person and definition of a #GirlBoss


leandraLeandra Medine
I am going to go ahead and call Leandra aka the Man Repeller a geek – a big fashion geek. She is unapologetic for her love of fashion and does not care what anyone else thinks, if she likes it she wears it… Basically she is one of us and just doesn’t know it!


Star-Wars-The-Clone-Wars-Dave-FiloniDave Filoni

Dave is the creator/director of Star Wars Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels. He loves the universe and every panel I have seen him on he has been great. I love that he has created a new world for us to explore and has brought in a whole new generation of Star Wars fans!


feliciaFelicia Day
What can I say… I kinda love this girl. She is Charlie on Supernatural (R.I.P.) and I love Geek & Sundry. She stands up for women in the nerd and gaming world. I loved her post during Gamer Gate and the stance she took. Also she throws sick SDCC parties.




Sheryl Sandberg
COO of Facebook and author of Lean In (a game changer for me) this woman is who I look up to the most when it comes to my definition of a strong working woman. She believes is true partnership, women in the workplace, mothers in the workplace, and a million other amazing things. If I ever meet her I will thank her profusely for all she taught me.

  • Awesome choices! So much Star Wars love<3 I also included Felicia Day, she's such a huge inspiration and role model to geeky girls everywhere!
