SPONSOR: Gillian Forde, Senior Structural Engineer - Aurecon Australasia Pty Ltd
I am a 28 year old Project Manager. I hold a Bachelor and Masters degree in Civil Engineering. I am originally from Lithuania and came to Australia three years ago to complete an Advanced Diploma of Leadership and Management. I will shortly be commencing a Diploma of Project Management.
I work at NS Group - An industry-leading company, alongside many high-achieving colleagues. I believe one of my core traits is that I take every challenge as an opportunity to grow whereby, I learn from my mistakes and celebrate daily accomplishments as personal victories.
Outside of work I am an avid tennis player (beginner), gym junkie, and love to travel. I think that travelling is one of the best investments in yourself, that opens the opportunity to self-discovery and understanding of who you are and how you can cope with new situations. I traveled to Europe recently, and Croatia was one of my favourite places because of its' genuine people and delicious seafood. I would visit Split, Croatia again in a heartbeat, just to have their amazing fresh octopus' salad.
