As a deck cadet, my daily tasks vary from daily maintenance on deck, Tank entries for inspection, Gangway Watchman, Conducting Drills & facilitating Resilience Training and partaking in operations such as Mooring, Bunkering, Stores, Cargo Ops,Towing Operations, the list is just endless.
My favorite part of my job is the opportunities my job gives me to meet people from different places in the world as well as so many beautiful places all around the world.
I am currently also enjoying seeing companies giving women a chance to grow more than ever, because we are just as capable and deserving of these opportunities. I’m pleased to see that a lot of females are becoming officers and captains. It means that the organization together with companies are with us and moving towards a more inclusive future.
My advice to all women seafarers is to believe in themselves and don’t allow anyone to doubt you, you are aware of your capabilities and strengths so don’t let anyone make you feel like you’re not worthy of your job.
