Against The Tide

Sophy Achieng Elector,Kenya.

I must admit that at the start of this journey I was almost giving up due to Inferiority complex as a result of my gender, but I thank God I didn’t. I have learnt to accept things as they come,ask for help when and if I can and having supportive colleagues has been helpful as well.

To any female starting out a career at sea every day brings a new challenge presenting an opportunity to learn more. Don’t you dare listen to people’s opinions about your capabilities. It’s all within yourself.

Achieng is currently Junior engineer onboard a passenger vessel
