Happy 4th Nerdyversary: Our Origin Story


March 2020 feels like both a million years ago and the blink of an eye.

We Nerdy Girls thought we might be answering questions on here for a few weeks at the most. Despite all the stress, grief, and pain of the last four years, we are SO grateful for the chance to work with this amazing group of women every day. We also never imagined how much we would love and learn from YOU, our Dear Pandemic/TNG community. We’ve all been through A LOT together. We’re here for the long haul. We appreciate all of the reflections you all have left in comments over the past week of Anniversary posts.

If you ever wondered what Those Nerdy Girls beginnings looked like, please read this poignant and hilarious account from our founder Dr. Malia Jones.

Highlights include an Icelandair flight, a pair of costume steampunk goggles courtesy of the CDC, 9 seasons of My Little Pony, the real Dr. Phil, some depressing Fitbit data, and so much more.
