Take on opportunities presented by new technologies.

What do you do?

We roll out fibre connectivity to rural and underserved communities

Why did you choose this field?

Not really. I became introduced to Telecommunications as I was developing my career. I loved it so much that I spent over 18 years in ICT.

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

Participating in the country's Digital Economy Master Plan development.

Why do you love working in STEM?

It is a catalyst for social transformation. I am always elated to know that we can connect one more child to the internet. We can make farming easier through technology. We can enable access to health for the poor.

Best advice for next generation?

They must take on opportunities presented by new technologies. Firstly, there is fulfillment in attaining what was predominantly known as a man only industry. Besides that, it is the world that drives shifts in life, you are forever learning new things and you have an opportunity to impact lives
