4. Who has been the most influential person in your life? Why? My father was most influential in my life. He was a very accomplished
man and achieved many of his goals during his life. I learned very
much from him and have made many of his ways my own.
5. What lessons have you learned that would be valuable to women beginning their
careers in technology? As I said before, it is important that women don't give up when they
encounter obstacles. Just go for what you want. You can take little steps
but be persistent. Also, remember to learn as much as you can and listen.
Women have a lot to contribute.
6. What strategies do you use to maintain balance in your life? I don't have a specific strategy. But I do make sure that I find some
personal time every day, even if it is only 5 minutes on some days.
7. What new technology do you believe will have the most positive impact on the
world in the next 20 years? The most negative impact? I am not scared of any technology. On the contrary, technology awes
me! I believe any technology can be positive or negative depending on
how it is used. However, personally, I believe the most promising
technologies will improve our ability to communicate with each other.
