Why she decided be an engineer: she was good with analytical thinking and had a creative mind, and engineering gave her the option of combining them to make ideas into reality and using them in the real world. When she started there were few women in her classes. She was awarded a scholarship for academic performance.
As a new entrepreneur she realize that being an engineer and a fashion model with appreciation for art, design and performing arts have some common points such as aesthetics, class, and timeless results. She want to integrate those and make a product related to both that will contribute to society and the world.

Future Goal: she would like to be a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.
