      I guess my dad who was an engineer and always had lots of gadgets at home. My dad never made me feel I couldn’t be an engineer, in fact he was very encouraging.

      I remember going to a women in engineering event last year and they asked us how many of us had parents who were also engineers and nearly all of us put our hand up. I found that very interesting!
