Who am I:

I strive to inspire more women to join the aviation world. I want to show them it’s possible against all obstacles and challenges. Furthermore, I’m changing the perception in hope to close the big gender gap in the aviation industry (only 6% of women are airline pilots around the world). Big exposure, more role models and fewer stereotypes will encourage more women to join this amazing and unique industry.

My TEDx talk – “how women can change the world of the aviation industry” presents an in depth look on my way in aviation and how I believe women can change it.
