As a woman in technology, I have had the opportunity to work on various exciting projects and experiences that have shaped my professional career. Born in Greenland and raised in Denmark, I spent the first 10 years of my life in Greenland, then Madrid, and in Toronto. I have always had a global mindset which has not only led me to speaking five languages, but it has helped me to thrive in the constantly evolving technology industry. Thus, early adaption to changes and the understanding of cultures have always been part of my life.
Initially, I studied marketing and international trade, but as I progressed in my studies, I discovered a passion for life sciences. This led me to specialize in this field and explore opportunities that combined my marketing skills with technology.
Over the years, I have worked in sales within healthcare, manufacturing of packaging material food & beverage, and software production. This has given me a well-rounded understanding of the industry. Today, I am focused on helping clients, key players in the Life Sciences Industry globally to digitize their processes and make the most of technological advancements.
Don’t always aim for perfection!
One of the most important lessons I have learned throughout my journey is not to focus on perfection. In the tech industry, we are constantly pushing boundaries and exploring new ideas. It is essential to be open to trying out new things and not to be afraid of making mistakes. Perfection is an unattainable goal and focusing on progress and improvement is key to success.
Dedication and Perseverance
Dedication and perseverance have also been fundamental to my career progression. Working in the technology field is incredibly competitive, and it takes hard work and determination to succeed. Staying focused on my goals and consistently putting in the effort has helped me to achieve my aspirations.
Finally, I have learned the importance of self-belief. Seeing yourself where you want to be and believing that you can achieve it is crucial to success. In the tech industry, innovation is the name of the game. Being able to believe in yourself and your ideas is essential to making progress.
In conclusion, my journey as a woman in science has been a rewarding experience that has taught me many valuable lessons. Dedication, perseverance, and self-belief are key to achieving success in this dynamic and constantly evolving industry. My advice to aspiring women in tech is to stay focused on your goals, be open to new ideas, and believe in yourself. With hard work, collaboration and determination, anything is possible.
