There are few women in my field but my advice to all women would be:
- Never lose sight of your original goal or lose faith in yourself. Persistence is the key to success
- Women can succeed in non traditional areas. It takes more determination often just to have your right to be in that field acknowledged and accepted.
- Decide what you want to achieve and pursue it single mindedly.
