What’s the biggest challenge you have faced as a woman in business to date?

Being a boss of older people. I mean very old, by decades. They are not easy to accept this, especially if males.

Who has inspired you (male or female)?

I have so many inspiring role-models; as each time I reach my intended goal, I go for a higher goal and hence my inspiring person changes since I am leveling up.

What do you wish you’d known when you started out and/ or what advice would you give your younger self?

I would like if I educated myself with different qualification around the world. It took me some time to know all the certifications and do my analysis.

What are the character traits of successful women and/or what do you think makes a good leader?


Do you have a favourite quote or statement that sums up your approach to life?

If something worth doing, it is worth doing well.

What do you #ChooseToChallenge?
