WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
I have always been fascinated by how things are produced and then how easily they are made available to the people. Supply chain management is a complex field and I learnt about it more when I started my Master's at TUHH. It has been a difficult journey for me as I was not financially stable when I decided to pursue my dream to study abroad. But with a lot of hardship and the support of my family and friends I could achieve that. Today I am proud to say that after so much of struggle and barriers I could finally achieve a successful career at a company that I barely dreamt of working for someday. Due to this I always strive to encourage young women in my family or surrounding to be financially independent because I believe that gives you power. The power of taking your own decisions, the power of freedom, and most importantly the power to express yourself better. Every woman should have that opportunity or at least get that opportunity. I believe in equality and I have got this belief from my parents. They have raisrd a boy and a girl with equal opportunities and freedom.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
To express yourself freely. and courage. There have been times while growing up when I never had that but today when I look back, I feel situations could have been different had I had that

BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
To keep believing in themselves and never stop trying
