Meet Oya Ak Kaykun.

Geologist

Toronto, ON


What inspired you to enter and pursue this field?


Willing to learn more about our planet.


How did you come to be in this position?


During my internships when I was an undergraduate student, one of my mentors affected me to choose oil and gas industry. Then, I continued on this path and became an exploration geologist.


What advice would you give young women looking to enter your current line of work?


My biggest advice would be that they should definitely take part in events, jobs as volunteers. They can expend their connections and take some tips from seniors.
