Being a young woman in project management in a male dominated industry is always a challenge, but to be honest apart from the onsite older builders, my team fully respects me and trusts my decision.

What is your definition of work-life balance?

To be honest I love for my work. I’m always studying new design, solutions, improvement... even in Social media (Facebook, Instagram...) but I normally try to give myself time for my hobbies, travel and family/friends.

 

 

How do you de-stress from work?

I train 3 times per week with my volleyball team and I have a volleyball match every week. I’m also very lucky that I actually live on the sea - it’s really peaceful at the end of the day.

I’m a person that's always doing something, thinking of new things and looking for new challenges - I have worked in different countries (Birmingham, UK), (Turin, Italy) and Tetuan, Marroco). I also really appreciate my family, I speak with my mum every day and with my brother and sister. I love traveling the world with my boyfriend and the long weekend breaks with my friends - all of my holidays and money go to traveling. I really love the idea of having an international network to meet new women in project management & engineers to share experiences!
