« I left school when I was 12. I spent my days doing nothing. Gradually, I started to want to be able to help my parents. I felt more responsible and I wanted to do something with my life.
I heard that the IECD was offering training for careers in electricity. I was told that this 3-month certified short training course would help me to find work. From November 2017 to February 2018, I learned the basics of the profession. “As soon as I finished the training, I was hired at a store selling electrical equipment. I still work there. At the same time, I have started my own business: I offer my services as an electrician on worksites and for private individuals.
People are often surprised by my age, but they are even more surprised to see how I work!
If I had started working before doing this course, I would not have been able to establish myself in this profession so quickly. Now, at the age of 16, I am in charge of a business! I was nothing before compared to what I am now. »
