“If you are persistent and passionate, you can actually achieve anything that you desire. And being a woman in tech is actually very empowering because I feel that I can lead by example, and also provide other women with something to aspire to…We can help each other succeed as we understand the struggles we face each day. By being a collective team, we can make progress together.”
