Video clip: Samira believes in looking for opportunities. She has always felt that it is important to apply for promotion without waiting for encouragement.
What about going for promotion? Is that something that you were encouraged to do? Or was it something you had to work out for yourself?
I very much believe in in going for opportunities and not waiting to be encouraged. I think that is key. So I’ve never waited to be encouraged to apply for something and one doesn’t know until they’ve tried. So I’ve always felt that it was better to apply for something too early than not to apply for it at all.
