When I was younger, all I knew was that I wanted to change the world! Growing up, I saw how companies can have a large impact on the world through simple ideas. I realised that this is how I could realise my dreams, through technology and using my ideas.
I studied electrical engineering at university, but quickly realised it wasn’t for me. As part of it, I had to do an introductory computing course, and I loved it! I changed to computer engineering and have been loving it ever since.
When I interned at Google, I worked in a team with two other interns and we had to create our own mobile app. I felt so out of my depth. I had to learn a completely new skill set! In the end, we did something we were really proud of.
At Google, the work always aims to have a positive impact on the user, and in some way improve their quality of life. This extends to my personal passion as well. I’m an Indigenous woman, and my goal is to have a positive impact on the Indigenous community. I know I can use my ideas to benefit Indigenous people and improve quality of life for all.
