I grew up always loving to work on engines. It is something I have always wanted to do. I thought it would be cool to take a class like Power Equipment Mechanics, where I could work on engines instead of sitting in a classroom. I enjoy the opportunity of making friends and working together with them in this program. We have a lot of fun together.
