To get what you want, you’ve got to know what you want!

It's already nearly the end of February 2017 and you probably started the year by writing your goals down, the usual: get fit, get a (new) job, start saving, start a new hobby, learn a new language...etc but did you write these because that's what you want or it's what you feel you should aim for at the beginning of every year: To be healthier, wealthier and generally better than last year.

In both my personal and professional life – they have been extremely demanding of my time, skills and capabilities (more like a complete shake up in mywork-life balance).

Real Women in STEM: Jacky A.

The power of the internet has made this happen. Jacky (currently in Australia) and I met through a mutual Facebook group that focuses on personal development. After spotting each other as engineers in the group we connected and started exchanging emails.

Bio: My name is Jacky Ayo-Opio. I am 22, and an engineer. I love all things creative - sketching, painting, braiding, designing and building; and all things active - from running to playing various sports, and random outdoor activities.

Picture 1 ( Right). Christmas in Uganda 2015 - I am of Ugandan heritage, I didn’t get to go there often as a child, however in the last 6 or so years I have gone every 2nd year with my parents and brother.
