KWN Member Spotlight: March 2024

This March, Kensium Women's Network is proud to launch our Member Spotlight series! Each publication will feature three KWN members whom we think everyone should know more about. These women are intelligent, and talented, and are the type of people who deserve more recognition. Meet our March 2024 KWN Member Spotlights: Kenya Perez, Sariel Myllari, and Sowjanya A, 

 

Meet Kenya Perez  

Picture1I am Kenya Montserrat Pérez Vázquez, and I hail from the state of Morelos, Mexico. I am the youngest of seven siblings. I made my way to Yucatan, Mexico, almost 16 years ago after marrying my husband (whom I met online 23 years back). Our lovely 15-year-old daughter brings immense joy to our lives. In my spare time, you can find me enjoying online games (a bit of a surprise) and crafting wooden furniture. I really admire the work of J.R.R. Tolkien. 

What initially attracted you to your current field of work? 

 I have always been someone who seeks positive feedback from others, and what better line of work than customer service? So, when the chance to work in support came up, I jumped at it without hesitation.  

What is one of the most important achievements you have had during your career?  

Getting the chance to join a company as significant as Kensium, and being able to showcase my ability to contribute value to the organization, was truly important. 

 What are some of the biggest challenges you have faced in your career and how did you overcome them?  

One huge challenge was my apprehension about using English in the workplace and being able to communicate effectively. The second biggest challenge was confronting the task of assimilating into a new company with unfamiliar methodologies, processes, and tools. However, the key to overcoming this obstacle was to have faith in my abilities and persuade myself that I could succeed. 

 What are you passionate about outside of work?  

I really enjoy dancing and playing video games. 

What is your mantra for managing work and home? 

Every task has its appropriate time and place. 

What hidden talent do you possess?  

I quickly pick up new skills through imitation, whether it's languages, processes, techniques, or anything else. 

Do you want to give a message to the colleagues of the Kensium women's network on the occasion of International Women's Day?  

Do not allow others to diminish your strength. If you desire something, you are just as capable of achieving it as anyone else. Be proud of yourself because there is nothing more beautiful than being a woman. 

 

Meet Sariel Myllari

Picture2My name is Sariel Myllari and I’m a Marketing Coordinator with Kensium’s Creative Services department. Originally from Israel, but I’ve been calling Los Angeles home for the last 14 years. Outside of work, I enjoy spending my time outdoors, spending time with my dog, and practicing photography.  

What initially attracted you to your current field of work? 

I’ve always been intrigued by marketing and the creative side of advertising and storytelling. But I also find strength in managing projects, so being a marketing coordinator is the best combination of both.  

What is one of the most significant achievements you have had during your career?  

Constantly learning different types of tasks outside of my “role.  

 What are some of the biggest challenges you have faced in your career and how did you overcome them?  

English is my third language, so it was a challenge to learn. But the more you speak and practice, the better you will get over time.

 What are you passionate about outside of work?  

Photography, pottery, volunteering, and outdoor activities.  

What is your mantra for managing work and home? 

Balance is key.

What hidden talent do you possess?  

I think it might still be hidden! 

Do you want to give a message to the colleagues of the Kensium women's network on the occasion of International Women's Day?  

Chase your goals and learn from one another :)

 

Meet Sowjanya A.

sowjanyaI am a Data Analyst for the Kensium billing department. I am well-known for timesheet reminders and for always providing support to my department. I am very lovable and helpful, enjoy actively doing new tasks, dedicated to my work. 

What initially drew you to your current field of work?

I have a chance to learn about every department resource and their work within the organization, due to timesheets. This unique perspective has helped me to learn more.  

What is one of the most significant accomplishments you've had during your career?

During COVID, I switched careers. I went from being a school teacher to a data analyst, and it's a completely different routine and culture. I feel the biggest accomplishment in my career is feeling empowered to pivot. 

What are some of the biggest challenges you've faced in your career, and how did you overcome them?

I started work in the billing department without any knowledge or experience. Slowly I began to understand the flow of things, the responsibilities of my department, and how to implement automation. 

What are you passionate about outside of work?

Yoga helps me a lot. I recently attended 30 days of Hatha Yoga Sessions and completed 108 Surya Namaskar in 60 minutes!

What is your mantra for managing work/home balance? 

I do not push today’s work to the next day. I follow priority and accuracy. I receive excellent support from my husband, as well.

What hidden talent do you possess?

I am a good dancer. 

Would you like to share any message with fellow members of the Kensium Women’s Network in honor of International Women's Day?

“Women are known to be the symbol of spirituality, strength, love, sacrifice, and courage.” First, trust yourself, be active, and be dedicated to work; and the positive results will follow.
