My Experiences in WorldSkills Competition 2022 Special Edition

In this post, I will talk about my experiences in the Worldskills competition in Goyang.  First of all, let me introduce you to the WorldSkills Competition. WorldSkills competition is an International competition held in many fields of expertise (IT, Jewelry, mechanical, etc).

Like any other competitor, I started from the regional level. At the same time, I met some people who had the same goals as me. They had a CTF team and one of the admins of that team invited me there. To be honest, I learned a lot of things from this team and the members (Also I still learn from them :D).

We passed the national level competition together, and AmirFarzam and I were selected as the official competitor of WSC. We worked very hard for 2 months. I remember the day Farid and I were working literally 24 hours without a mere eye shut. Finally, after 2 months, it was time to go to Korea. It's worthwhile to mention that it was also my very first flight and I was very excited at that time.

Korea is a green country, and it has really pleasant weather. Throughout the competition in Korea, I made new friends who shared the same goals as us. By the way, I wish to work with them in the future.

In this path, both of us learned a lot during the competition like Networking concepts, Privilege escalation, Powershell functionality, etc. But there were more important things, We (at least I) learned to manage time properly, better interact with people, and be friends while competing.

But I believe the most important one was learning that one must never lose hope and remain in despair where the anxiety caused by it hurt me at every competing level. A hard but precious lesson learned!
