"Eventually I want to become a car mechanic. In a few weeks my education in engineering will start. I already called garages in town to ask for an internship. 'No, no, they said, 'you cannot do an internship here as you will distract the men as a female.' So I replied that I could dress up like a man, wearing a cap and sunglasses. But that didn't convince them."
Elheme works at Van Hulley - a place where women that want to work but don't have the necessary papers for their ambition in the labour market gain experience and follow education. They turn your old shirts into boxer shorts.
