I discovered Vrgineers through my school program at North Carolina State University. The moment I learned about the innovative work Vrgineers is doing in the field of virtual and mixed reality, I was immediately intrigued and inspired.

What does your daily routine look like at Vrgineers?

Each day at Vrgineers is different and comes with a new set of challenges and experiences. I start my day by checking my emails for tasks, any scheduled meetings, and finishing up any work from the previous day. At the beginning of the week, we have a meeting to set the tasks that must be completed. My main responsibilities include content creation, analyzing articles, assisting with photoshoots for new products, and supporting various daily marketing tasks. This dynamic environment keeps me engaged and allows me to constantly develop new skills while contributing to the company’s innovative projects.

Biggest challenge?

My biggest challenge was transitioning from a university in the US and going out of the country for the first time.

These experiences have developed my leadership skills, particularly in communicating with various groups and navigating a professional environment.
