"From my earliest childhood memories, I can remember trying to figure out how things were assembled and how they operated. I’ve always enjoyed building things from scratch so naturally I knew the trades were the right career path for me. I chose millwright because of the variety and diversity of this trade. In the future I would like to work in a management role while leading a team. I got involved in Skills Competitions in grade 12 and went on to compete at the 2016 Skills Canada National Competition where I qualified to compete at WorldSkills Abu Dhabi 2017."
