Trade: Qualified telecommunications tradie and an apprentice sparky.

I always did well in manual arts and similar subjects at school, I used to pull my toys apart, as a kid, to see how they worked and then put them back together. I started my trade journey a little late in life as trades weren’t really an option for girls when I was at school but I found myself in mostly hands on jobs before I got my start.

A little over nine years ago, a small telecommunications company took a chance on me and after a trial as a trades assistant they offered to put me on the books as an apprentice.

In that time I have completed that trade certificate, worked for a few years as a qualified tradie and, most recently, embarked upon a new apprentice journey to receive my electrical qualifications.

My favourite eve items are the sharp shorts and the flanno.
