WHERE DID YOUR TECH JOURNEY STEM FROM?

I've always had a passion for technology. Having divorced parents at an early age, forced me to learn more about everything technology and in fact; I managed to set up my computer by myself when I was 12!

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE BEST PART OF BEING A WOMAN IN THE TECH INDUSTRY?

Everything ;)

WHAT HAS YOUR OVERALL EXPERIENCE AS A WOMAN IN TECHNOLOGY BEEN LIKE?
HAVE YOU FACED ANY ADVERSITY IN YOUR CAREER?

Overall very good. I have sometimes felt adversity in the form of not being taken seriously or not being trusted enough. I have easily overcome this by proving my worth and making actions count.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST SUCCESS OR YOUR BIGGEST LEARNING OPPORTUNITY?

For me, each learning is a success, whether it has a positive or negative outcome. I think one of the best things that happened in the most recent years, was building out a fantastic team: eager to learn, motivated, passionate about our vision and driven to achieve great things.

HOW DO YOU THINK THE INDUSTRY CAN HELP WOMEN IN TECHNICAL FIELDS?

Provide equal opportunities, empower women to speak up and contribute more.

WHAT IS SOME ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO THE NEXT GENERATION OF WOMEN IN TECH?

Never be shy to come up for what you stand for. Your voice counts just as much and we are all equals.
