Last year we announced our Twilio Champions Program. A Twilio Champion is a developer who inspires and equips their communities using Twilio. They demonstrate leadership, expertise, advocacy, generosity, and Twilio Magic within the content they create and community building activities they participate in.

Today, we'd like to introduce to you to one of our Twilio Champions, Jen Aprahamian.

Jen Aprahamian is a Technical Program Manager for Developer Education at Netflix. She went from winning fax machines signed by @jeffiel at SIGNAL $BASH 2017 to presenting Flex during the keynote last year.  

Why are communications important to you in your career or personal life?

I honestly can’t imagine a way that communications don’t touch my life! It’s so important to stay connected to people, whether for personal relationships or to get work done, and communications are pivotal to that.

Describe one of your favorite apps today and why.

I really love Ginger, which is a personal coaching app. It’s great to have someone to talk to about everyday stresses and things like imposter syndrome, and it’s all done via in-app messaging, so it feels like I’m being met right where I am.

Will you be at SIGNAL? How has SIGNAL been valuable for you in the past?

Yes! I've attedned SIGNAL three times! The people truly make this conference amazing. Twilions are so energetic and helpful, and it’s always so great to meet developers from around the world who are interested in communications and connecting people.

Want to meet Jen and other Twilio Champions? Register for SIGNAL today.

What are you most looking forward to this year?

Connecting with my favorite Twilions and Twilio customers! I can’t wait to go to Superclass, hang with the rest of the Twilio Champions, and meet some new friends.

Champions are invited to join us for a day-long Summit filled with content geared just for them. This will take place on Sunday, August 4th @ Twilio HQ before SIGNAL. They will also receive a free ticket to the conference.
