Statement:

"In a male-dominated industry, driving for diversity and equality just gives me a great sense of fulfillment . - currently, women make up only 14% of the construction workforce, and I hope to live & see this number is at least doubled during my time in the industry. - Gender equality prevents violence against women and girls and It's essential for economic prosperity."
