What Is Skills USA?
Skills USA is a convention for students to compete against each other by showcasing their professional and career abilities.
What It Was Like To Compete
We were given a lot of freedom to create during competition. With only a simple prompt to follow, they would let us go out and record anywhere we wanted in the city. It was a lot of fun bouncing ideas off each other and having so much creative freedom.
Chattanooga Was Awesome
Chattanooga is such a beautiful city, its tasteful, timeless atmosphere made me feel right at home there. The relaxed, laid back scenery of the area was so calming it almost felt like a vacation!
Getting to hang out with all the other students competing was also a ton of fun.
What We Took Away From The Experience
I learned how enjoyable and satisfying it is to work on a professional level project and also the focus and work ethic it takes to pull one off.
Learning not to have many expectations for any task before it is given was an important tool I picked up during competition. It prepared me for my career world while also simply giving me a good fundamental rule to live by.
