Why did you get into STEM?

STEM is fascinating and challenging at the same time, but in a good way. The kind of challenge that leads you to create solutions and keeps you excited while you do it. I also found that I really enjoy Software programming and this directly influenced my decision to build a STEM career.

In short, I got into STEM because it is a fun way to create valuable solutions.

What do you consider your greatest achievements?

Honestly, my greatest achievements have been excelling at my jobs so far.

What challenges have you faced as a woman in STEM and how did you overcome them?

I haven’t faced too many challenges as a woman in STEM, but one challenge I have faced is having to prove myself because of the inherent perception some people hold that women are not so good in STEM fields. I overcome this every time by ignoring it, educating those I can educate, or simply focusing on my job and giving it my absolute best.

What is your advice to budding women in STEM?

Keep at it. It is really rewarding, and we need more women than ever to start and stay in this field. Cheers.
