What brought you to a career in technology at the United Nations?

The love for technology was birthed at home during holiday seasons where my mum would task me with her campus assignments that required soft copies and I would use our home desktop to type them. I enjoyed it and after my high school, I enrolled for a diploma in IT as I waited to join campus. In campus I rejected the psychology course that I had been offered and instead I opted for a Bachelor of Business & Information Technology (BBIT). Immediately after campus I got an internship in a technology company and that is how my career kicked off.


What has been your favorite technology project or initiative at the United Nations and why? What was your contribution?

The transition in printing from using pin codes to using the ID cards. This has made the task easier, especially not having to remember the pin for most clients. I am glad that I was involved in this project.


What advice would you give women interested in pursuing a field in technology?

There is a need to acquire new technical skills or knowledge as technology keeps evolving. Look out for women role models in the same field because there is always a lot to emulate from them.
