“I decided to pursue engineering because I was inspired by women role models who were engineers and scientists—not just ordinary ones; but bold, creative and leaders in whatever they chose to embark upon. When I see other successful women, I feel a strong sense of community, inspiration and renewed energy to succeed myself.”
