Profile Biography 
As a child, I wanted to work as SWAT officer, pilot or anything that will make me be a hero while doing a job considered to be a man's work. I turned out to be very good in math. I live in a country where French is highly dominant and English is spoken by less than 20% of the population. Thanks to my parents, I attended bilingual school at end of primary school and I developed a love for English. I continued with my second love in high school: math. It was a game for me and I continued with science. Unfortunately for me there was no english engineering faculty in our universities. So I was back to speaking French for these last 5 years. It was not that bad, it taught me I could play with languages. I started working for Halliburton 2 months before I graduated, this was very stressful but also very interesting as I went back to my first love; English.

I am a mechanical engineer who used to practice swimming and judo. Right now I am fond of yoga because it doesn't have a time nor space limit. I love music, dancing, arts, reading, traveling, eating. I am also very fond of hair especially natural hair. I love learning. I live in Central Africa in a country named Cameroon there are very few women engineers. But as I always say "live your dreams, because nothing is impossible."
