Nearly 5 years ago, I flew out to Göteborg, Sweden, for the Euroskills competition. I competed in the Fashion Technology section with the Worldskills Belgium Organisation. What an amazing experience ! 
I had to be ready for this kind of competition: that’s why I trained with my partner - Ronja FELL - and my expert - Christelle CORMANN.  With their help, I found the best in myself, professionally and personally speaking. 
The next step was the competition. We left Belgium for Sweden with the all Belgian Team, the Red Bears. We became like a family. When the pressure was on, I knew I could count on the team because we were living the same experience and only they could understand what I was experiencing back then. Even if I was well prepared, the competition was hard. I needed to be focused and never give up.
And hard work finally paid off: we won the golden medal - the first and only one for Belgium in the Fashion Technology section ever.
The most important in this  experience wasn’t the outcome, but the journey. I have learned so much during the preparation and the competition, more than I expected. 
This experience with the Worldskills Belgium Org changed me forever.
