According to Katrina, she decided to go into welding because people believe it is only meant for men.
Her ambition is to own a workshop of her own and employ as many people as possible.
She said she would have been an accountant if she was not a welder, adding that she plans to send her siblings to the higher institution when she starts making money as a welder.
