Researcher at Antsiranana university in Madagascar
Compete with yourself.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
I work on water wave problems and mechanical engineering
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
First of all I pursued mechanical engineering and then did PhD in Physical Oceanography. I connected these two fields because we are in Island and we can explore the ocean energy
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
My great achievement was completing my master 2 in physical oceanography on time and graduating in the top 10% of my class of over 50 students. I had no financial support from my parents and I had to work while pursuing my degree. This taught me to prioritize my time, build great habits, and stay focused on my goal. I learned many things during my master 2 preparation and this is a big advantage for my career.
WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?
I want to show everyone that woman can participate in country development
BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
when a woman works and has a personality no one can look down on her
