Technicians across the country have been touched by Mia’s story after it emerged it that she was told she would never be able to become a mechanic because of her gender.
GW reader, Steve said: “Good luck with your dreams, but be determined to turn them into reality.
“Go into it as a professional and you’ll come out as a professional.
“The professional training is key to your success.”
Commenting on the GW Facebook page, Nigel Pluck said: “Absolutely rubbish there is absolutely zero holding women back because everyone supports is either through morals or being destroyed if they don’t.
“[The] thing that annoys me is when I’m denied a place on a course because a certain amount of places are only for women so I end up losing out just cause I’m I guy.
“This stuff annoys me all we heard is so called gender discrimination yet it does not exist.
“Why make a deal out of one stupid comment some idiot made?”
Rosana Linda Sherwood said: “Wow! All these comments.
“I’ve been a mechanic for over 15 years and all I had from fellow mechanics was sexist and patronising behaviour.
“Hopefully, this will change.”
Replying to Rosana, Matt Seabrook said: “No place for it in 2018.”
