Do you have a guiding principle, motto,
or quote you live by?
"Be the change you wish to see in the world."
Who is your role model, who inspires you?
I mostly get inspired by the stories of the people I meet when I travel. It helps me put things into perspective and appreciate the beauty of diversity.
How do you measure your success?
I measure success by taking the time to look back at the past and reflect on my journey. Becoming aware that I am evolving and pursuing my values makes me feel fulfilled.
What is your proudest moment in your professional career?
I worked 6 months in a hospitality school providing high-quality education to underprivileged students in Siem Reap, Cambodia, where the tourism industry is booming. Helping young graduates build
their future and have access to exciting job opportunities made me very proud.
Despite being quite introverted, I am proud of always pushing myself to embrace the next challenge and trying to get out of my comfort zone.
What personal achievements are you proud of?
Coming from the hospitality industry, the main challenge I had to face in tech was to adapt to the vocabulary, as well as learning about a lot of new tools. Numbers show that both tech and hospitality are still male-dominated industries, especially when it comes to senior positions. However, Beekeeper is the most inclusive workplace I have experienced so far.
What is the biggest challenge
you’ve ever faced as a woman in tech?
What is your advice to young
women in tech?
Get out of your comfort zone, embrace new challenges, never stop exploring and don’t forget to support other women.
