Nikita S Ubale
Senior Consultant, Ernst & Young (EY)
Follow your passion and don't fear the failure.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I am an Industrial Engineer working as a Senior Consultant at Ernst and Young. As an engineer, I help clients with optimizing complex processes, systems, or organizations by developing and improving integrated systems of people, information, equipment, energy, and materials.
At work, I am passionate about improving and streamlining processes. At the same time, I love being able to serve my women in the stem community as a Mentor at Women in Stem board at EY( Women in Tech) and NYU Alumni.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
I was always curious about machines, and evolving technologies around. My curiosity about learning new things led my decisions to pursue engineering.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
I wish the younger me knew that it's okay to fail. All your failures would be a stepping stone for the success in future.
WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?
I love working in STEM because it gives you the power to learn and create something new every single day. It gives you the ability to dream and then wake up to convert that dream into life by using the skills, tools, and techniques.
BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
Follow your passion and don't fear the failure. Think about your dream job - the job that would make you happy, the job that would help you change your life and lives of people around you and then backtrack the job to the degree, course or any education credentials that would help you to be the specialist in the field of your interest.
