When I had lost my grandfather, I decided to be worthy of him. I wanted to become an engineer and succeed it. I studied engineering at university and after a successful work life, I realized that I chose to live my passion. I have a successful career as well as being a mom also added value to my life. I learnt to be patient and learnt to empathize. This really helped me on my work life as well as my personal life.

It was a scary beginning however we managed with the help from family and friends. It is good that you have children when you are young so that you grow with them. It is also difficult due sometimes you feel restrained from what you want to do. Then, you learn to balance 😊

From the very start of my career, I managed to work hard however be there for my family. I am lucky to have a sharing family and nowadays it is more difficult to differentiate work/private life due all work is now done remote ☹

I have always team members I had trained and educated. This was all along my role, naturally. So, I am told that I am a good listener and also a good teacher.

Life is an ongoing experiment. Do not live in the past or in the future – Seize the day! NOW is that all matters
