From an early age, I said I wanted to do engineering and a lot of my friends were like, oh, my God, this is a boy’s field. This is a man's career. But my parents encouraged me to choose anything I wanted. They said if I liked it, I should go for it. They were my main support.
I came to Canada from Venezuela as an international student just to study engineering. I was expecting to find a different world where I would be with a lot of women in engineering, but there weren't many females in electrical engineering at the time, and I think it’s still the case now.
