Tell us something about yourself that might surprise readers
You all have great achievements to share, I can only share succeeding in life.
Being raised in a strict family environment I was invisible as a girl between 3 boys and not allowed to participate in anything or have friends over. Well, so the story goes, got married, got divorced, and then started studying at night enabling me to move from a typist (this gives away my age..) to Personal Assistant to the CEO of a well-known company.
Just as I reaced my 40 I started studying again and moved into HR for Sasol Chemicals who manufacture and distribute chemical and energy products around the world.
2008 came along and we moved to New Zealand with 2 bags of clothing still working in HR for a road construction company.
Studied again, extramural to obtain a NZ Qualification that took me 4 years but now been in H&S for 10 years at first in roading and now an analitycal laboratory.
I am living the dream being safe, owning my own home, working for a stable company and looking forward to how much I still can contribute before I need to hand over my reins.
Be safe out there, I must admit I hate working from home....
