Women have been urged to resist the fear of venturing into male dominated professions especially when they are driven by passion.
According to the CEO,“Passion drives one into excellence and success, do not be afraid to venture into any productive activity or job because of the high number of men in a particular sector but rather be driven by determination and love for the job because that alone can launch you into successes. There is beauty in peculiarity.”

Madam Nabiya explained that she developed the passion for Architecture because her father was a carpenter and had since continued to give off her best on the field irrespective of the number of men in the Architectural sector.
