"I will participate at EuroSkills™ because I love what I do. It will also be extremely fun to be a part of the Swedish team, now that we are the host nation."
"I really love what I do, it's my dream job. And I believe if you are really passionate about what you do and when it comes from the heart, the results will follow."
"A plasterer's job is very diverse in Sweden, which makes it so special to me, because I learn many related skills. It brings me a lot of joy, which I think is most important. I always wanted to make money doing something I like."
"I did an internship as floorlayer in my uncle's company and because I liked it so much, decided to go and make it my livelihood."
"I like the artistic aspect of it, using my hands. That's just fascinating to me, having the opportunity to create art, because what I am doing is very close to art already."
