Click on the link to access the interview with Sanya as she talks about what inspired her to go into STEM, Career Advice and much more! Here's a snippet:

Q: How are you showing the industry that women are challenging the status quo?

Sanya: I have always had a dream of being a strong female pillar within a male dominated industry and with my training and background, I am trying to make that happen. I want to spread the message that even though you are female, you can make a strong impact and contribution to the engineering community especially in the Caribbean. Apart from destroying myths that a reliability focused company launched in the Caribbean can be run by a female engineer, I think that we are coming into the age of open-mindedness where a lot more people pay attention to the value that you bring to the table rather than your gender.
