''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.

Fast learners

Speaking with their master, Iddrisu Baah, he stated that he doubted their work ethics when they first started but they have proven him wrong.
