Google's Marissa Mayer Gets Chosen as One of Glamour Magazine's Woman of the Year

Google's Marissa Mayer Is One of Glamour's Women of the Year

At just 34-years-old, as Google's vice president, search and user experience, Marissa Mayer, will soon be celebrating her 10-year Google anniversary. Being the very first female engineer to be hired by the search engine company way back in 1999, Mayer climbed her way to the top and is now a very prominent figure at Google, which now employs over 19,000 people worldwide.

This month, Glamour Magazine is honoring Mayer with a Woman of the Year award. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives and 2002 Woman of the Year explains why Mayer was selected for this award:

"She has been a powerhouse of creativity and business acumen for one of the world’s most innovative companies. Marissa Mayer is leading the way in keeping America number one."

A very deserving recipient indeed — smart, geeky, and not to mention, incredibly stylish!

That's awesome! I love when magazines go outside the box to recognize inspiring and truly deserving women rather than big name celebrities.
