"Women make up only 16% of the traditional energy sector. Having women work in this industry will bring in new ideas and different ways of thinking. This will help in finding better solutions to the world's energy problems. By working together, we can make a better future with more power for everyone."

Who am I

I am currently pursuing a degree in Bachelor of Computer Science (2 Minors - Enterprises and Data Science) at QUT. With a background in Immunologic Research, I have pursued degrees and worked in this field. I am proud of my academic achievements, which have remained consistent throughout my past and current career, as demonstrated by my high GPAs and other accomplishments including publications and conference presentations. I have been a mentee at Cisco Mentor Me and Dream BIG Steam Ahead Program through who I have worked as a Summer Vacation Intern and now as a Casual Graduate Intern with Energy Queensland while I complete my degree.

Why I chose a career in power

In the words of Marie Curie, "One never notices what has been done, one can only see what remains to be done" And there is so much to be done in the power sector right now, to come up with innovative energy solutions and to help create a sustainable future for generations to come. So please choose this ever-evolving industry that plays such a critical role in our daily lives, and you will find a rewarding and fulfilling career path.

Where it all started

I chose to pursue this degree because I was seeking a career that would offer me the flexibility to dedicate time to my child with medical needs. Computer Science and the Power Industry were the most ideal choices as they would continue to enable me to apply my problem-solving skills, contribute to the development of cutting-edge solutions that could have the potential to improve and change the industry and satisfy my passion for continuous learning and personal growth.

My work experience.
What's next?

The ongoing innovations in renewable energy, energy storage, and smart grid technology are changing the way power is being generated, distributed, and consumed. This shift towards more sustainable and efficient energy solutions not only benefits the environment but can also help prevent energy wars. The future of the energy business looks cleaner, stronger, and more high-tech.
