Elisha Dambrot, an Environmental Engineering student at UniLaSalle Rennes, won second place in the Dalkia Women's Energy In Transition competition. A victory for her, which reinforces the importance of the presence of women in scientific circles.

She chose this voice because she has always been passionate about the environment, and energy in particular, from an early age. 

"Indeed, when I was in elementary school, we had various science lessons and more specifically lessons on renewable energies. I was seduced by the subject. Indeed, I fell in love with the subject and wanted to "save the world".

After graduating, she would like to join a large company where she could do energy consulting and help companies reduce their carbon impact over the long term, mainly by reducing their energy expenditure:

"I'm interested in nuclear energy. In fact, I find the construction and dismantling of nuclear plants particularly interesting to do. It's a job that perfectly combines the knowledge we acquired during our studies at UniLaSalle Rennes, with the technical skills we need to develop, which allows us to fully develop as Engineers."

Eager to challenge herself, Elisha responded to Dalkia's competition:

"I'm also doing this competition to prove to myself that I'm in a profession that's made for me, as a woman and a future engineer too. This competition is a way for me to meet new people so that I can meet people who are just as passionate as I am, whether it's about the same subject I want to work in or another subject for that matter."

Elisha takes second place in her category:

"The aim of this competition is to send out a strong message about women in business.
Thanks to this competition, I was able to step out of my comfort zone. I'm really happy to have been able to take part in this competition, and even happier to have won second place in my category."
