What do you like most about your job?

I love that I can support national governments in meeting their emergency telecoms “readiness” goals. These efforts ultimately contribute to enhanced resilience and recovery post-disaster.

 

An unusual or surprising fact about yourself?

I have a keen academic interest in ancient Egyptian studies, particularly architecture and myths!

 

The best advice you ever received? The worst?

The best advice I received was that patience and perseverance are critical for a career in international diplomacy. The worst advice was not to aspire for a career in programmatic work. Originally coming from a communications background, with passion and self-learning, the transition is indeed very much possible!
