She said she trained for two months before the competition, spending six to seven hours daily on specialist skills. She admitted that the competition was tough, as some participants had more than a year to train and prepare. However, she is determined to do her best and achieve a high position.
She added that the team had to complete two different challenges in the first two days of the competition and then face three other challenges or tasks on the third day.

Moreover, HCT graduates have become experts at various levels after participating in the Emirates Skills competition and relevant international competitions in previous years.
Marwa Al Zarouni, a technical college graduate and the "Head of Experts," is one of them. She has been an expert in skills competitions since 2015 and now oversees the graphic design challenges that competitors face, working with international experts from other countries. She is proud of her related role.
