My favourite or most successful post:
I shared this post a few years ago upon receiving my Outstanding New STEM Ambassador award. I think many people in my network liked it because I shared a personal story of what inspired me to go into STEM, congratulated ladies with the International Women In Engineering Day and tried encouraging others to take up a career in STEM and indeed do more outreach. It is through personal loss and pain and many difficult lessons that I see myself slowly reaching the heights I never thought I would… But I am forever grateful to my family and those friends and colleagues who keep supporting and being there for me no matter what.
