      I never really wanted to be an engineer when I was younger and I never really knew the job existed. Once I started the job, I found lots of inspiration online from other women who had become engineers in lots of different fields. As an engineer you get to build exciting things and that provides me with inspiration every day

      Finding the games on my dad’s work computer (back when computers were green screen)
      and feeling like a hacker. Then I got my own computer and managed to dial Sweden to download files. Then having the internet at Uni.

      So the potential for communication.

      It was mostly my dad as we was a petroleum engineer and his job sounded quite fun so I wanted to be like him. I was also quite good at Maths so I thought engineering or at least something to do with numbers would be fun to do.
