I decided to choose a skilled trade because I wanted to be able to work with my hands. In addition, I have always been interested in fashion, which is a field with room for creativity. Someday I would love to be working in high fashion.
I got involved in skills competitions when some of my teachers talked about them and asked if I would like to participate. Having a chance to qualify as a WorldSkills Team Canada 2019 Prospect and potentially compete at WorldSkills Kazan 2019 is an unbelievable opportunity!
Thinking of people who have inspired me, in terms of fashion, I would say it is Thierry Mugler, whose unique and iconic creations always encourage me to exceed my goals.
