The work of a cosmonaut is closely related to the vocational occupations. It was actually considered as one before, because you have got to control a spacecraft and maintain its systems and work. As a cosmonaut, you should know how to work with your hands at the same time as using your head. This is exactly what the young professionals will do while getting ready and competing at WorldSkills Kazan 2019.

First of all, every Ambassador should promote the values of the Competition, in other words, popularize skills. I’ll keep doing it and hospitality industry is not the limit, because I'm interested in other fields, as well. There is always something to share with others no matter what you do: painting, building houses or cooking.
