Christine’s advice to other women: It is essential to challenge and stretch yourself often, and not let yourself get stuck in a position where you don’t feel like you are growing or learning. I encourage women to enter careers in the fields of their passion and enable themselves to freely choose their path―essential to a society that champions and advocates for gender equality. Find a mentor, ask questions, understand varying perspectives and allow yourslf to make progressive decisions, as it is important to explore different fields, skillsets, and industries.”
