Voices of Nolij: Celebrating Women’s History Month
In celebration of Women’s History Month, Nolij would like to acknowledge and honor the extraordinary women who keep our company growing year after year. Ona Dashpuntsag, a Human Resources Manager, exemplifies every courageous woman who follows her dreams and is undeterred by challenges. Thank you Ona for making the brave journey from Mongolia and making Nolij a much richer place.
“I belong to one of the last nomadic groups in the world, and I have always wanted to travel the world to explore and learn. When I was 19 years old, I decided to move to the United States to pursue better opportunities. Coming from a society where multigenerational families live together, and young women don’t usually leave home until marriage, I had to be strong and self-reliant. It was a difficult transition moving to a new county, learning a new language, and adapting to a new culture and society. Growing up, I dreamed of America as a magical place of freedom, prosperity, and full of opportunities. America has lived up to my hopes and fulfilled its promise that hard work, talent, resourcefulness, and initiative get rewarded. I could not see my family in Mongolia for the first six years, but I was fortunate enough to meet many wonderful people at Nolij who made me feel at home. Nolij has helped me to become the person I am today. I joined Nolij in 2015 as an intern supporting the HR team, and I am currently an HR Manager and oversee benefit administration, payroll, onboarding, and offboarding. Like my fellow Americans, I am hopeful and continue to focus on what the future will bring.”
