What does your typical work day involve?
I worked for a sales and marketing manager for five and a half years, so I worked outdoors on plant more than in the office, but I worked solo or with a team, and I used to travel abroad more than twice a year.
What do you love most about your profession? Why did you choose this career?
I love to build new relationships with my new customers and help them solve their technical problems by offering the right product. I chose this career because it is one of the fastest-growing positions, so you could easily find many opportunities for professional success. I'm also looking for a job that lets me constantly update with industrial chemicals.
When did you realize you wanted to work in STEM?
I needed to be involved in the Canadian community, so I decided to do volunteer work; then, I started looking for the organization's vision. I liked the values of STEM, which help individuals and organizations.
What were your favorite subjects in school?
What advice would you give girls, who are still in school, who might be considering a career like yours?
They have to divide their time between study and activities until they find their passion in their life, and they have had a goal in their life and start working to achieve it because I believe that if anyone does not have a dream, their life is meaningless.
Why do we need more women in skilled trades and STEM?
I think we understand them more because we passed the Same feeling on when we were their age.
Who was your role model? What about this person inspires you?
My college professor, she always very cheerful, helpful, so she treated us like older sisters, so she let us respect and love by her attitude.
What do you do for fun? What are some of your hobbies/activities?
Outdoor activities like travelling to discover a new place and its activities like hiking and water sports.
What superhero do you relate to most? Why?
I do not believe in superheroes because everyone is a hero in his life.
