"Marlin was a quest speaker at the Microsoft Digi Girlz Event. I was very impressed how she prepared and modified her presentation to meet the needs of her audience. More importantly, her audience love her discussion topics and connected with her. My 16 year old daughter who is very critical of most adult speakers at the event, loved Marlin.She commented that she and her friends agreed that Marlin Page was by far the best speaker at this 3 day event. To this day, she still refers to Marlin's discussion points. Marlin experience in technology and her life experiences changed many girls in the room mindset about technology and self esteem as a young woman. They are all blessed. On behalf of all the parents, Thank you Marlin!!!!"

Chief Technology Mommy
I provide parents, adults and organizations practical tips on keeping kids safe online. I share stories regarding Internet Safety as a means of education and awareness. No high level technical jargon, but "things they can do today," to keep children safe online. I speak with students about Internet Safety and Social Media Responsibility. Speak with girls on how their self-esteem is linked to their online behavior and I tie it in with my book "Always Believe." Empower girls to consider STEM.
