What would you like people to know about you?
I am an avid sports lover. In my free time, I love to run, swim, bike, play tennis as well as spend my days hiking mountains and being close to nature. I am also passionate about Africa and the people and life there, in additional to nutrition and the impact food can have on our bodies. The passion for nutrition came from when I spent over eight months living in Uganda, volunteering for the NGO I am a part of.
How did Worldsensing embrace your cultural diversity?
Being from a multicultural background and having lived in multiple countries around the globe, I easily felt integrated into the international realm of activities within Worldsensing. A funny fact is that when I was going through the interview process for Worldsensing, I was actually living on and off in Uganda, Africa, in charge of an NGO development. The mere fact that they supported my situation increased my enthusiasm about this company even more. The strong human connections and the living cultural authenticity of Africa and Uganda helped shape the latest version of myself. I embrace diversity and search for ways to help make a difference in the world, a philosophy that meets the identity of Worldsensing and its teams. The enrichment is mutual and undeniably contributes to a beautiful thriving professional atmosphere at large.
How do you think each person can help create an inclusive environment at work?
What made me feel most included is the mentality of the people. Everyone’s very international and open minded. Everyone is here to help each other, whether you’re in the same department or not. What’s really important is listening to each other. Worldsensing is very advanced in terms of diversity and inclusion. There’s a wide range of people in the workforce, but most importantly Worldsensing embraces different ways of thinking.
