When did you know that your skill lit a spark in you that other professions didn't?

Every time my Dad would be fixing something, servicing his car or doing anything mechanical, that is where I loved to be and would be helping out in every way possible. From that moment I knew I wanted to fix something. I researched and discovered not many women pursed Aircraft Maintenance Engineering for its challenging reasons. I choose to be one of the Odd One Out and actually fix something.
What is your favourite WorldSkills memory?

Why is being part of WorldSkills important after your competition is over?
After the life changing experience I had at WorldSkills, I would love to continue advancing my skill and share the knowledge I have to promote others. I really want to be part of the WorldSkills movement.
