As a working mother, travelling hasn’t always been able to be her first priority; but it did help her cultivate skills that have helped her overcome tough times and have greatly successful trips!

As a Graphic & Motion designer, I can't thrive in a place where creativity doesn't have space to flow freely. I'm constantly looking for inspiration and more often than not, it comes from within. I'm grateful that at AO, I'm surrounded by people who instill a sense of inspiration in me. They are constantly helping me carve a path for myself and giving me a place where I'm always becoming a better version of myself.

I'm someone who's always believed in team work. Being the HR manager, it comes partly from my responsibilities and partly from my inherent belief in collective growth. My time at AO has been extremely enriching but what I value the most here are the bonds that I've been able to make with people. These relationships are what continue to inspire me and as we march on together, I've no doubt that we are heading towards a future that's brighter than ever before.
