Women in maritime
What did you want to become when you were a kid, and why?
I was an imaginative child, one day I wanted to be an astronaut, another day a midwife. Then, eventually, as a Millennial growing up in the era of technological evolution, I became interested in working in technology, or with the Web, which came true now that I work in digital marketing. I just wanted to either help people or be part of something creative and innovative.
Why did you choose to work within shipping?
I have always loved travel personally, I have fond memories as a child taking the ferry with my family for our summer holidays in continental Europe. Entering into the shipping industry gave me first-hand insight and there’s never a dull moment.
What is your best work-related memory?
My best work-related memory would be when I visited the Bridge. I felt like a child again. It was a fantastic experience meeting the Captain and seeing how it all works and how our amazing teams get us across the seas safely.
Who has been your role model?
Maya Angelou and Frida Kahlo are inspirational women that have motivated and inspired me through art and poetry, they have made an impact as women in their respective industries.
