Believe in yourself.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
Technical Lead for the DBaaS Site Reliability Engineering Team responsible for maintaining production systems.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
I have been fascinated with computers since before I could remember and a lot of it has do to with my dad who wasn't an engineer but knew more about computers than probably I do right now. I was a school topper for the computer science stream during my high school board exams and when I saw my dad beaming with pride when he saw my photo in the newspaper, I realised that my decision to pursue my career in the IT industry was the right one.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
Being promoted to Technical Lead with just 4 years of experience and managing people with 12-15 years experience.
WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?
It's a great opportunity to meet fellow women in tech and also having the ability to engage in hands on tasks. I wake up looking forward to first learn something new and teach something new to someone. Knowledge flow should never stop.
BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
Believe in yourself. Always have a plan and never think any thing is out your bounds. If you want it, you can achieve it.
