A woman who works as a trader has hit back at trolls who say it’s not a ‘girl job’ – telling them she looks great in her work outfit.
Lauren Larsen admits she was initially worried about her career path but is now happy about her decision to become a carpenter.
She shared a video on TikTok in which she is wearing her orange and blue work uniform, while in other snaps she is wearing shorts, a hoodie and boots. The US sun reports.
“You start an apprenticeship as a carpenter at 19,” she wrote in the caption.
Her followers praised her stunning looks and many shared their experiences of working in retail.
“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, but it was so sacred to me that I would be convicted,” said one social media user.
Lauren replied: “I was worried too! But the way I see it – you’re going to be judged no matter what you do… so you might as well enjoy it.”
Another said: “Honestly I’d like to know how you came up with this because I’m lost and want to start carpentry soon.”
Someone wrote: “Yes, more girls in commerce! I am a sparkling apprentice.”
One added: “I’m a concrete worker! I am happy when we show how capable we are!”
It comes as a female soldier has revealed what she looks like off duty and has said her fans are going crazy.
