A lady Engineer Blazing the Trail in Ashaka

 

A number of engineers move towards their control room. From a distance, it is hard to distinguish one from another as all are kitted in reflective overalls, hard hats, nose masks and boots. This makes it difficult to tell that among the group of process engineers is an individual who has surpassed the expectation of many to become a first in several ways.

As the engineers take their different position before computer screens monitoring all the equipment that convert limestone, iron, sand, gypsum and other materials into cement, Mrs. Debora Danladi takes essential readings on computer screens before moving to a console to continue the day’s work. It didn’t take a long time to notice that she is the only woman in the room. Yet she moves from one switchboard to the other with as much dexterity as anyone. She is an engineer; indeed the first in Ashaka.It didn’t take a long time to notice that she is the only woman in the room.
