Like my father and sister, I studied pharmacy, thinking it would be a good subject because it touches on all of the scientific disciplines. However, the closer to graduation I got, the more I realized that running a pharmacy wasn’t going to be my thing. I needed more excitement and diversity in my work.
I managed to get an internship in Florida in the field of immunology—in which I eventually got my Ph.D. I became a publisher of cardiology journals for Elsevier Science and learned about digitalization. I realized that I wanted to switch fields and decided to pursue a business degree to gain a solid understanding of business theory. While completing my MBA, I started working for global professional services company Accenture—a leap of faith rather than a solid plan.
