Meet Charlie Camp, a female building apprentice by day and rock-star drummer by night who is smashing stereotypes in the building industry.
In an eye-opening interview with Oompher, an inspirational YouTube channel brought to you by Careers New Zealand, Charlie shares her passion and motivation for building despite the hardships she faces on a daily basis as one of just a few females in the industry.
“It’s quite daunting – I definitely find it really hard,” Charlie confides.
