Industrial Architect, Airbus


Never let cliches define you.

What do you do?

I define and develop the industrial architecture of future Airbus to enable efficient and optimum system that generates value for the company.

Why did you choose this field?

As a child I loved planes and it intrigued me more for being able to create them. It helped me feel centred. Hence I traversed my journey focussing on being able to move continents and pursue my dream.

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

I have done exactly what I dream. That way I am fortunate to have actually been living it now.

Why do you love working in STEM?

Because it helps generations to believe that STEM is for everyone and not specifically for some brains. God made all brains the same. I feel especially more energized when I can challenge my brain and achieve things. Let's say I have always enjoyed the road less traveled.

Best advice for next generation?

If I can, so can anyone. Never let cliches define you, if someone tells you you are a girl you shouldn't do so and so. Do it ten times more and take pictures and enjoy. I love stem and encourage all girls to feel free and happy to choose.

Inspo quote / fun fact / role model

“Know thyself. Find your meaning and purpose and then work incessantly hard to achieve it.” It is my own one.
