Haylee Sterling, Junior, tells me why people should join Skills USA, her personal experience and the payment that comes along with joining.

Beginning the interview, I asked, “Tell me about your experience with the daily meetings, what was the purpose of them and where are the meetings usually hosted?”

“My experience with Skills USA was fun. I learned how to develop personal skills. The purpose of Skills USA is to come together as one and work together. All of the career tech teachers host them,” she said.

I then asked her: “Why should fellow students at Roswell High join Skills?”

“It’s such a fun experience.You get to meet new people from other schools and interact with them,” Haylee exclaimed.

Continuing on with the interview, I then asked her what exactly Skills USA is.

“You basically compete in Skills USA.You set up your station and judges come around and judge you on your work (cosmetology, hair, nails, makeup, etc). The purpose of being in it is to develop team working skills. It doesn’t matter what grade you’re in, anyone can join! The payment to join is 40 dollars for a t-shirt and other festivities!” said Haylee.
