Question 1

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to go abroad for higher education and dreamed of traveling the world experiencing different cultures.

Question 2

What has motivated you to take on a position of high responsibility within Henkel?

I have a belief that everyone deserves a chance to be successful, however, the lack of good role models or proper coaching have limited some of these growths. I know I can make an impact on people at any level, but a high responsibility position afforded me with the opportunities to expand my influence even greater.

Question 3

What were the milestones in your career and are there people or circumstances that have favored your career?

I feel fortunate that I have been able to reach my position today without any clear milestones in my early career. I was blessed with a strong work ethic and a thirst for challenge. My primary focus has always been performing well by delivering exceptional results, and that has served me well in the long run. I attribute my success to many people who have helped me along the way.

Question 4

What is your advice to women seeking to build careers?

Define personal branding – know what you stand for and deliver results.
