I wanted a physical job, so I went into construction. I chose electrical work because I like understanding how electrical systems work and I like working with electricity. I don’t have any specific career goals right now. I just want to continue developing my skills in my trade.
I heard about a regional skills competition at my school and decided to participate; one thing led to another and now I’m taking part in the 2024 WorldSkills Competition, in Lyon. I was very happy and excited to learn I will be competing at the 47th WorldSkills Competition. Like other skills competitions, I think one of the biggest challenges will be managing my stress. And the best advice I have ever received is this: To ignore everything around you, concentrate on yourself, and do your best.
I love music.
