WorldSkills Champion Lee Hee Dong is #SkillsProud
Meet Lee Hee Dong, WorldSkills Champion, CNC milling engineer, and representative on the WorldSkills Champions Trust.
To start the new year, WorldSkills is interviewing WorldSkills Champions to find out why they are #SkillsProud.
Lee Hee Dong is a WorldSkills Champion, CNC milling engineer, and representative on the WorldSkills Champions Trust.
As a child I liked to make things with my own hands. I felt fun and joy when I made things like sandcastles or wooden houses.
I realized that it would be ideal, to connect the things I liked with my work in the future.
Fortunately, with CNC Milling, I easily found a machine that would really fit with my idea.
When I decided to follow CNC Milling as a career, there were no difficulties because it was what I enjoyed doing - and I was good at it!
When I introduce myself as a “CNC milling engineer“ people don’t seem to know what that means.
But the funny and interesting thing is that most of the products they use in their daily lives are from machines made through CNC milling or through CNC milling itself.
The fact that my skill is used everywhere for everyone gives me huge pride and makes me #SkillsProud.
