Keep pushing and never give up.

What do you do?

I design cementing jobs in the Oil and Gas industry. And Girls in Science and Technology is a foundation to introduce young girls in their formative science to STEM careers.

Why did you choose this field?

I am almost always the only female in my crew when I go offshore, I always have parents and young females messaging me to find out what I Studied and how I got into my career and others also asking for career advice, so I decided to help empower the future generation for STEM.

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

Girls in Science and Technology Ghana has been able to reach out to a lot of females in Ghana and being able to combine this with my career as an Engineer at Schlumberger.

Why do you love working in STEM?

I love that it is challenging and you always have to keep your brains active and Ready for a new adventure. Every morning is a new opportunity to mentor someone.

Best advice for next generation?

It’s not easy but very possible and once you have conquered a challenge, it empowers you to strive on. So keep pushing and never give up, STEM careers are rewarding.
