“When my father bought a TV for us, we were extremely happy about it. However, after using it for some time, it broke down, and we didn’t have the money to fix it or to buy a new one. I was just a child then, I decided to fix it myself. After a while of attempting, I failed because I had no experience, but I was ultimately able to fix it, and I was so happy about it. Ever since, I have had the desire to fix things, and reusing old devices for other purposes. I haven’t studied in that field, but because of the fact that I have worked so many years fixing things, I can now fix anything.
In 2002, I opened up an electrical repair shop. One of the reasons I opened this shop was to help the less fortunate people fix their devices while they can’t buy new ones. There are times that people bring me devices so old that fixing them is almost impossible, but I still try my best to fix them. I usually collect things that most people think are useless, but there is always something else that I can use them for.”
