Do you believe there is a glass ceiling for young female professionals? If yes, how can we break it?
Sure, we are living in a diversity world but companies, governments and society do not have the inclusion of this diversity. We need time and make people understand about this, but we also need people who do it. In my life, I could meet brilliant female professionals and I am aware, day-by-day, the big companies are getting aware of that.
My hobbies are:
- Everything related with engines, I love cars, motorbikes, races…
