“I have learned a lot by engaging with the bright minds that work across ADQ. Being exposed to their day-to-day tasks and responsibilities was eye-opening to me. It made me discover what I’m more passionate about and what my career aspirations are. Aside from that, I am also a big football fan and I’m honored that I’ve been selected to join the ADQ football team!”
