Having first lived in a family with patriarchal values and then worked in various male-dominated profiles, she is a passionate advocate for bridging gender gaps in the Finance Industry and strongly believes that women’s emancipation lies in women’s economic empowerment. She further wants to leverage her professional and personal experiences to create value and build an egalitarian society.
