Welcome to an exciting episode of the Secret Life of Entrepreneurs! Today is our second episode in the Women in Leadership series and our guest today is Nigora Yulyakshieva.
Nigora was the winner of the YWCA of Regina’s Women of Distinction Award for Mentorship.
A political refugee, Nigora arrived in Regina in 1999 with her husband and two small children, seven months pregnant and not knowing any English. She had an engineering degree in Uzbekistan, but was told she may never work in her field in Canada. She enrolled at SIAST to study Canadian engineering, then obtained her bachelor of science in industrial and civil engineering in 2002 and professional engineering status one year later. She currently serves as the City of Regina’s manager of roadway preservation.
