I have a non-traditional career path, as I transitioned to tech from working as a project manager for nearly ten years in media/entertainment. I had always been fascinated by technology, but thought a career was out of my reach. I am now a Site Reliability Engineer for a large cloud provider, Oracle, and doing my Masters in Computer Science with Cyber Security. When I am not spending my days up in the cloud, I am passionate about helping and advocating for women like me to get into tech and thrive in their area of choice.
In my free time I love to travel, watch Nollywood movies and spend time with my loved ones. I also try to work out at least 3 x 4 a week with a mix of reformer Pilates and the Nike Training app, as it helps with my mental clarity.
Find your tribe, there are times you may wish to give up or think you can’t make it. But your community will help uplift you and keep you going. It’s about progress and not perfection, so never feel down about “not getting it”. It’s a journey, you have got this!
