In my first video as a Brand Ambassador for Cadillac, I wanted to showcase the Escalade's design and ability to drive off road. The shoot started at 4am, where I began my drive towards South Kuwait's Burgan Field, one of the world's largest oil reservoirs.
I organised an on site meeting by a Sucker Rod Pump where I addressed a team of engineers in a Health and Safety meeting, capturing the environment I typically experience at one of Kuwait’s most well esteemed Oil and Gas service companies.
I made the decision to start working in the Oil and Gas industry about 6 years ago even though I did not study engineering or have any prior experience in a field that requires a lot of technical know-how.
Being able to build a career in an industry that I never thought I would be part of has made me realise that nothing is out of your control and understanding. Anything can be comprehended through focus and determination, no matter what your background is.
There were several times where I contemplated moving onto a profession that would best suit my interests, but I stayed resilient and have learned how to work through the challenges and appreciate the opportunity to keep learning.
