“Women are as strong as men and can do any job. Girls should know that they are as strong and capable as men when it comes to welding. Financial independence is important, so their sex should not limit them from trying out jobs mostly done by men. Despite the number of women and girls who train in metal and fabrication, the majority do not join the vocation because of the work environment. They think of how they will be viewed doing a ‘man’s job.’ I don’t care about how I am seen if I get paid.”
