How I got here

I started my career in tech at Amazon. Being the only woman on the team, I barely spoke up and struggled with imposter syndrome. The challenge as a woman and an immigrant (English is my second language) impacted my self-esteem and led me to believe that I wouldn't be very successful in this career path.

"You can't be what you can't see" - It's rare to have a female role model, or even a manager or a mentor anywhere in tech. I got used to being a gender-minority for all positions (engineer, tech lead, manager) throughout my career. 


In the past decade, I felt grateful for many sponsors who believed in my potential more than I ever did. Today, I have an opportunity to build my own diverse team that consists of women in leadership roles from a line-manager to a technical leader. I am proud to be coaching many high potential future leaders and would like to do more outside of my day job.
