Twins,14, quit school to learn mechanical work at a fitting shop
In more news about talented kids, Briefly News previously reported that when twin sisters Gloria and Glorine Martels decided to combine their education with mechanical work, they were convinced it was the path they wanted to pursue.
Gloria and Glorine Martels, aged 14, decided to quit school and fully concentrate on mechanical work after they started learning at a BMW shop. The twin sisters believe that they were born for this because it runs in their blood, although they plan to return to school to perfect the craft at a technical school.

Passion for the job
In an interview with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, Gloria indicated that their passion for the job led them, and their parents were understanding enough since their father worked in the field.
''My father used to work in this field as well as my uncle. Initially, they wanted us to complete school first, but we used to run from school to work here. Eventually, they agreed to let us learn,'' Gloria told DJ Nyaami.
Glorine, on the other hand, disclosed that their dream is to become Army Wheeled Vehicle Mechanics in the future.
''We want to become soldiers in the future. We will learn on the job for five years and after that, we go back to technical school. Now, we work mainly on BMWs,'' Glorine said.
Speaking with their master, Iddrisu Baah, he stated that he doubted their work ethics when they first started but they have proven him wrong.
''They are very hardworking and smart. They can disassemble and assemble and also take out the engine. But they are now learning how to detect faults in cars,'' he said.
