๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸพBe #AnythingYouCanImagine ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ Rashieda Murat, Team Lead in our Catalogue department, when asked about which women she looks up to: "That's a hard question, as there are so many female icons in the world. But to me there are two females whom I admire; one being Cindy Breakspeare for the amazing work she does inspiring other females. She uses craft to inspire others as well. The other female that inspires me is not known to the world but she is known to me in my world and that is my daughter. She inspires me to be more, to do more and most importantly to grab every moment that comes my way."

๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸพBe #AnythingYouCanImagine ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿพ Meet Lisa Bailey, powerhouse Analyst in our Engineering department. When asked which female icons inspire her, here's what she had to say: "Generally speaking, females in leading roles within a male dominated sphere - this is not necessarily because I believe women are still 'hard done by', but because it can be personally challenging to overcome one's own perceptions of 'belonging' if they are a part of the minority. I see overcoming one's own limitations (perceived or real) as a great success. "
