(CES 2012) Ladies Who Tech: Anya Ayoung Chee’s Journey From Tech To The Runway
January 17th, 2012 by Christen
Kicking my Las Vegas and CES experience off right, my first CES soiree was hosted by Clever Girls Collective and Beth Blecherman of TechMamas 'Ladies Who Tech Happy Hour' which took place at the ultra luxurious Wynn/Encore hotel. An evening filled with appetizing snacks and delectable drinks, I got the chance to catch up with some of my old friends and met some new ones as well. Event sponsors were also on hand to talk about the fabulous goodies provided in our giftbags including a new Sony Bloggie Live video camera and a Kingston Wi-Drive. With all the excitement in the air and the abundance of women who tech in the building, we all were graced with the presence of Project Runway Season 9 winner Anya Ayoung Chee, who joined the event behalf of HP and Intel. Anya, the former graphic artist-turned beauty queen spoke with us about her former career goals, her family and how Twitter got her onto the hit reality television show - Project Runway.
