What’s the most courageous thing you've done in your life and how has it brought about change in your life and the lives of others?
When I turned 40 I left the country and started a new job in the corporate environment. It was daunting because I had never lived abroad and away from the people I love, nor did I have any experience in the corporate world. Thankfully I gathered my courage and made the most of the situation, using my kids as my inspiration. That was certainly proof that life can begin at 40.
What motivates or inspires you in your field of work daily?
What motivates me in my field are the passionate young men and women I work with. They perform over and above the call of duty to get things done. I learn so much from them, as much as I try my best to mentor them. I am also very motivated by our consumers, the people we serve. At the end of the day, through the work I do, I endeavor to give them a great experience that inspires them to be their best selves.
What are you most passionate about? How did you find this passion?
I'm passionate about my work as a communications specialist. The world we live in is changing at such an exponential pace and it's exciting to evolve with the times to create new ways of communicating with audiences of all ages and from different walks of life.
What’s the best thing about being a woman?
The best thing about being a woman is that we are such a major part of this thing called the miracle of life. That and the fact that we are nurturers that can combine soft and strong qualities make us great partners, parents, leaders, and examples to others around us.
In your opinion, what does the future hold for women?
Women will get more empowered at home and in the work place. We will see more women in leadership roles, be it in politics, the corporate world, and at home. Women will play an even more active and visible role in shaping the world.
