Why did you get into STEM?
I went into STEM due to my attraction to learning more about computer technology. With time, my passion to help people make the best use of their technology saw me getting deep into IT support and IT service management. And since then there’s been no looking back.
What do you consider your greatest achievements?
Greatest achievements. Well, there’s so much more to achieve in life but from the past, the ability to become a Microsoft Certified Professional was a big deal for me, so big that my Dad got me my first laptop after I became certified. Also, the opportunity to impact others positively continues to be a great achievement for me.
What challenges have you faced as a woman in STEM and how did you overcome them?
In the past, I have faced the challenge of trying to prove my ability to perform as excellently as my male counterparts in the field and been petite, I really had to go the extra mile to demonstrate my professionalism and excellent work ethics. These challenges have helped me through the years to become a better IT professional.
