Ever since Cynthia discovered her love for physics in high school, she knew she would become an engineer. "I didn't really dream of being an electrical engineer, but I always knew I would want to see 'engineer' engraved on my tombstone," says Cynthia. After obtaining her A-levels in 2015, she went on to study applied physics and computer science and obtained a Bachelor's degree in 2018. Her dream began to come true when she obtained a master's degree in electrical engineering and industrial computer science in August 2020. In November of the same year, Cynthia got her first job as an electrical system design engineer for a start-up company in the city of Limbe.
