Time of my life


© 2020, Robin Stattin

For about 9 years ago I was going to make a choice between studying to an electrician or study the science program. It was easy for me to learn new things so many thought that I should study the science program, but I really felt to work with my hands in the future, so in the end I made my choice and studied to an electrician. After three years of studying to an electrician I got a job directly after my examination. I have upgraded myself with knowledge every single day and it feels awesome doing what I love. Two years after my examination I got a phone call about an opportunity to compete in the Swedish vocational competition and of course I said yes, but I didn’t really knew what it was hehe. I ended up with a gold medal in this competition and have after this been to Norway and China to compete in their vocational competition and I was also representing Sweden in Worldskills Abu Dhabi 2017. This time where I was around the world I got a really big network of friends and contacts, both from Sweden and even some new friends for other countries. If I had to relate this journey I have been through to a song title I would say “I got the time of my life”.
