What are you looking forward to as you take your first job assignment? I’m looking forward to soaking in new knowledge, learning new skills and adding value to my team.
Are you passionate about women’s empowerment? If so, why? I’m passionate about women’s empowerment because it is necessary for a more equitable and forward society. The ripple effects of empowering women extend far beyond their families. Rather, an empowered woman will change the world since women reinvest up to 90 percent of their earnings back into their communities, compared to just 30-40 percent by men.
What is the best career advice you have received? Be confident.
