WordPress Origin Story

Vienna Richards found WordPress more than 10 years ago while studying digital technology and multimedia at university doing my undergraduate degree in communication studies. From there, she set up my first news website called using the WordPress CMS and blogging platform. The rest is history. She have built many websites and blogs since that time.
