I've dreamt of becoming an excavator operator ever since i saw my uncles excavator as a kid. I was so fascinated by the machine that I made a commitment to myself that I should operate a wheeled excavator when I grew up. I worked hard in high school and was able to get quite good grades, therefor a lot of people including my friends and teachers thought I should study Technical program, but I knew what I wanted to do in life so I choose the construction program.

I had 3 great years when I learnt a lot, mostly thanks to the long internship we had. I got to practice with two great professionals that loved to teach me. During the last year I participated in a school completion in Landscape gardening where i was in the top, this meant that I got the chance to compete in the Swedish Nationals in landscape gardening together whit my friend Fredrik. We won and became Swedish champions, which gave us the chance to compete in Worldskills in Kazan 2019. I graduated from school a mount after the nationals and got a job where I had my internship. They brought a brand new wheeled excavator for me to operate just like I had dreamed about. It has been two years now and I love my job.
