IWD Interview with Meredani

Interview with Meredani

Age: 31 yrs old, Job Title: Power Station Operator – Electrical.

I believe that we Women contribute a lot to society, and most of the time our contributions are not recognised. Taking part in this article is a way for me to appreciate & celebrate being a Woman and to use this platform to express my views of this important Day.

How would you describe your role at Aggreko?

Rewarding, Empowering, “An Exciting Challenge”

How would you define women empowerment?

Equipping women through Education, Financing, Encouragement, Advise so that they are able to achieve their goals, contribute positively to society, to help others, have their voice heard and to fix society’s problems.

What would you tell your younger self?

“That’s a man’s job” is just a figment of someone’s imagination, it’s not real. Don’t be afraid of society’s boundaries, challenge yourself, do whatever makes you happy.

What do you consider female attributes?

Love, Compassion, Generosity, Empathy, Fearless, Strong

Who is your biggest influence in life?

My parents

Why do you think it’s important to have International Women’s Day?

Women’s achievements, strength and contributions needs to be recognised and celebrated. International Women’s Day is just the perfect way to do that.

What message would you like to leave for men and women on International Women’s Day?

There is a wonderful reason why men and women are different in physical appearance, emotions, reactions, thoughts, opinions, abilities, strengths, weaknesses, mentality, and spirituality. What a boring world it would be if we were all the same and all understood each other. Let’s embrace and appreciate our differences and respect each other. Gender should not be a barrier; it should just be another reason to respect other HUMAN BEINGS. Happy International Women’s Day. Let’s celebrate Women today because Women don’t get enough credit/ recognition for all the VITAL contributions we make.

What are you looking most forward to about the event?

To hear about what men have to say about Women, and to celebrate with other Women
