▪️Iris started working in the trades when she was 16 years old. She was a bit of a trouble maker at school, so she decided that it was best to start working. She immediately fell in love with the plumbing trade, and hasn’t had one bad morning ever since.
▫️It was terrifying at first, being a male dominated culture she didn’t think anyone would give her a chance. When she started, it was difficult. She wrote to 20 companies and only one of them replied. Her perseverance paid off and brought her to where she is now.
▪️She has completed all of her diplomas. In the Netherlands you are given 3 years to complete the course, but Irish did it in 2 years.
▫️Iris says “honestly if you want to start in the trades fucking do it! Was absolutely one of the best decisions I made for myself 🌞”
▪️ @iristheplumber thank you so much for sharing your story with me! I’m so glad you found the trades, I was in a similar boat when I found my trade, so I commend your hard work and perseverance! I cannot wait to see what you accomplish next!
