Read my latest interview with a STEM specialist, artist and author, Raissa Urdiales from BIZCATALYST360
Here is a quick look to the fascinating insights Raissa Urdiales shared:
Digital transformation is touching every field of our expression with a persistent and welcome change if we find the right balance. What does it mean for our expression? During the past years, I enjoyed getting to know many fantastic women who have either embraced their creative, authentic path as entrepreneurs or are combining their worlds of day-to-day business and artistic creativity.
At the heart of such transition, I had the pleasure of interviewing a very expressive and creative Raissa Urdiales, Columnist at BIZCATALYST 360°, Author and Artist with the personal brand: Artfulbeing. Let’s learn more about what has fueled Raissa to embrace the creative way alongside her STEM career.
- Thank you for this opportunity to interview you, Raissa Urdiales. You have such an amazing career experience coupled with an array of artistic skills, including painting. Tell me a little more about your day job.
Raissa: By day, I work as a Systems Analyst supporting Human Resource Information Technologies. I stumbled into working in computer systems when my son was young, and Y2K was all the concern. It challenges my love for problem-solving and the strength of forever experimenting and managing projects. I have had what some would consider prestigious titles, reaching the famous six-figure salary, spending time believing I needed to climb a ladder to be successful. One very dark day, I learned balance was much more critical, and with it came a feeling of purpose and realized purpose is at the heart of success. During that darkness, I regrouped and reinvented who I am. Or, better said, with the absence of others telling me who I am, I could listen to my inner voice of who I was, am, and always have been.
