Feature Story: Women of Samsung Share their Goals for the Future and the Technology that Empowers Them
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we asked six inspiring colleagues from Samsung Malaysia to share what motivates them and the technology that empowers them to succeed. Here are their stories.
Khaizanita Binti Zakaria, Power Woman
Leading a team in a fast paced industry while managing a family requires a strong set of skills. Khaizanita understands the demands she has to meet on a daily basis and believes today’s women are amazing.
“We wear so many different hats today as a worker, supervisor, team player, mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, tax payer, hence our ability to multitask is far greater. Our lives may be split between being the loving, caring, supportive woman domestically and the leader at work,” said Khaizanita.
Helping her manage work and life is the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G that lets her multitask with ease. With the Z Fold3’s Flex mode features, she can join a video call using the devices top screen while checking her meeting notes on the bottom, making her work efficiently and effectively.
She’s also relies on the Jet Bot AI+ to keep her home clean. The smart robotic vacuum cleaner uses cutting-edge object-recognition technology to scan an object and expertly navigate around the house. Using the SmartThings App on her Galaxy Z Fold3, she can schedule which rooms to clean. Giving her more time to spend with family instead of chores.
Angel Ng Xin Ying, Next Gen Storyteller
Dancer and content creator, Angel believes young women should be fearless and always take a chance to learn and try new things.
“Now is the time to try, explore and improve on your interests, soft and hard skills. Women today should no longer be judged on certain things that were considered unwomanly in the past.”
Angel’s Galaxy S21 FE and her Galaxy Watch4 are her favourite products to make her everyday epic.
“I currently love the S21 FE the most, mainly because of its aesthetic and camera. Plus, the lavender pastel version is one of my favourite colours! It has enhanced my content creation as I can now produce beautiful content and record dance covers that look professional and flawless.”
“I’m also really amazed with the Galaxy Watch4’s ability to measure body composition conveniently. I believe I’m healthier than ever before now. I try to avoid sitting the whole day at work, as the watch will remind me to move around between hours”, said Angel.
Emma Ho, Avid Explorer
Avid reader, Emma Ho seeks to learn and explore the world as much as possible. She understands that life experiences can shape our perspectives.
“It’s important to recognise that we all have different realities. My reality in urban KL is very different from the reality of a woman in rural Kelantan, for example. As much as our similarities matter, so do our differences. What I would like, moving forward, is for women to empathise with and understand each other better. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be much credibility when we claim to speak or demand on behalf of women.”
Emma is working on the roll-out of an exciting new product for Malaysians, which she believes will help them see their world in a different perspective, more or less.
“The Freestyle is the world’s first, truly personal projector. I owned a projector back when I was in university, but no way does it compare to the technology that we have now. The portability and versatility of The Freestyle breaks the boundaries of traditional screens and enables you to invent and enjoy new methods of entertainment.”
Suzanna Ng, Travel Enthusiast
When she’s not travelling the world and learning about new cultures, Suzanna is at the forefront of a fast changing industry where she constantly seeks new opportunities for growth. The nature of the environment means she’s constantly improving and learning.
“Samsung is at the forefront of an ever-changing industry. So I’ve been given a great opportunity to grow into my potential and am constantly seeking to improve and stay relevant. I enjoy working on track towards our overall objective,” said Suzanna.
To help her stay on track, she has her functional yet stylish Galaxy Z Flip3 5G that lets her express her individuality while multitasking to the next level. With the Multi-Active Window feature, she can play a video, look up the information in it and respond to her team all at the same time. Its compact form, various colour options and accessories allow her to customise her device to express herself.
Qistina Binti Zainir, Fearless Skater
When she’s not roller skating in the park, Qistina is getting her skates on as a Management Associate in Samsung Malaysia. She passionately believes women must continue to speak strongly, to bring issues that affect them to the forefront.
“Today we’re not immediately or completely shut down from speaking about women’s issues more publicly, more casually, and more regularly. It’s liberating to be able to educate the people around me as a result of the ability to speak more freely about women’s issues.”
Qistina’s go-to product is her Galaxy Buds Pro which she pairs with her Galaxy A52s 5G.
“I’m quite a fan of the Galaxy Buds Pro. The sound quality is pretty amazing and the housing is small and compact so it’s easy to carry around. The Active Noise Cancelling feature immensely upgrades my content watching experience!” said Qistina.
Agnes Wong, Dedicated Achiever
To make her mark in a fast-paced environment, Agnes understands the challenges and rewards that come with working in a major brand that’s reshaping the world.
“To be successful in a cutting edge company, I have to love variety, I have to be entrepreneurial and explore different possibilities and I have to modify and improve on the ways I tackle problems. This is the exciting part of my job – doing things that haven’t been done before and continuously pushing the envelope,” said Agnes.
To power through her day, Agnes relies on her Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G which is equipped with the latest 4nm processor, so she can enjoy unrivaled performance on her most-used apps, for work or entertainment. The Galaxy S22 Ultra 5G’s powerful battery also ensures she has full day of use in a single charge.
And when she needs a larger screen for work, she can use Quick Share with the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra to share photos, videos and devices between devices fast and seamlessly. Giving her the tools to do more.
She adds, “Women are resilient. No matter what life throws at us, we rise above and thrive.”
