What made you want to pursue a career in engineering?

I initially intended to study chemistry at University but decided to study chemical engineering with chemistry as it offered the best of both worlds and chemical engineering is regarded as scaling up of laboratory production.

How did you journey in engineering begin?

My engineering journey began at Projex Solutions Limited.

What has been the biggest lesson you have learned over the years?

That you only fail when you stop trying. I think every hurdle is there to teach you something about yourself and mind set has an impact on how you approach difficulties, a positive outlook changes and improves your approach and how other perceive you.

What is your favourite thing about your job?

I have found that there is something new to learn with every project, things that are not taught at University but only realised when you work in a real-world setting.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to pursue a career in engineering?

I would say go for it, especially women as we are unrepresented in the engineering fields. I would also advise them to be able to embrace new concepts quickly and become familiar with them as this helps with all aspects of learning. Engineering in all fields allows you to pursue careers home and abroad.
