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

Mum of 6-year-old mechanic son speaks on her boy's determination not to quit the work
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the mother of a 6-year-old boy who had gone viral for being a mechanic has finally reacted.
In a recent interview with BBC News Pidgin, she remarked about how her son Benjamin has turned all of his trousers into shorts for the purpose of the work.
The mum Chidinma, however, finds no fault in the skill her son is acquiring as she thought there is nothing different from what he is engaged in compared to others that acquire skills in computer training and other less-energy demanding ventures.
