▪️Mel is 22 years old from Somerset UK. She realized she had a passion for metal when she was 16. When deciding college courses, she thought mechanical engineering seemed like the option for her. She signed up, and loved it!
▫️Working with the lathe was her favourite part. She was the only girl in her class. Mel achieved a level 2 diploma in machining and won Design Student of the Year at the end of her course!
▪️She moved around to different jobs, trying to get an apprenticeship. She finally found a place that she loved. Mel was turning and surface grinding for 10 months before the company closed down, she was heartbroken.
▫️Back on the job search, she came across a trainee welder role near her home, and she thought it would be worth a try. It turns out, she loves welding more than machining. She decided that welding was the way forward. Mel is currently working for herself, doing custom welding jobs and absolutely loving it!
