Faisal's journey as a car detailer and sprayer began in 2018 after completing senior high school (SHS). Unlike many SHS leavers who are sure about their career path, she didn't know what she wanted to do.

"After SHS, I didn't really have plans of going to the university because I didn't really know what I was going to do at the university. I kept searching for jobs."

But Faisal would end up quitting two jobs in a year because she had no passion for what she was doing.

"It wasn't really going well for me because I didn't see myself being happy doing whatever I was doing.

"At the end of the year in 2018, I was sitting in front of my house and this man approached me and he was like ''Yo, I've been seeing you around every day, do you need a job?'' - and I was like yes," she recalled.

After observing and understudying her male counterparts, Faisal worked on her first car, a Toyota Camry. She has subsequently worked on some expensive vehicles such as Lamborghini and Ferrari.

Working on her first car

"The first car I worked on was a Toyota Camry; it was a full detail. When I say detailing, I mean a whole thorough cleaning of a vehicle from the interior to the engine, wheels, and then to cleaning the body."

Currently managing Wheel Hub, an automotive enterprise into collision repair paint jobs, auto detailing, and auto auctions, Faisal is optimistic about the future. She started the venture five years ago and is leveraging social media to grow and expand the business.
