How are you preparing for EuroSkills?
I’ve been taking part in trainings and courses. I’ve also enrolled in private training. Feller AG, based in Horgen, runs a training camp that I've been able to attend. And I also practice at home.
What do you expect from EuroSkills?
I just want to give my best ... I want to experience what happens when I don’t give up and withstand such high pressure. I also think that EuroSkills will be a springboard for my own professional development. Lastly, I want to motivate those younger than me — I want to be a role model for those new to the electrical industry.
You’ve also previously delivered peak performances as a competitive skier.
I trained intensively as a skier at the regional elite training center in Hoch-Ybrig. I engaged in sports at an elite level and wanted to be a professional skier.
But despite being a top athlete, you chose a profession anyway!
Honestly, I didn’t give it too much thought. I tried out at my godfather’s company — and I enjoyed it. It just so happened that my training also fit well with my ski training. That’s why I'm an electrician today, for which I'm grateful.
