The 26-year-old says sexist comments from men don’t bother her because her main focus is work

Tantin, from the Philippines, said she “doesn’t need any confirmation from anyone” and prefers to work alone because the men who love her are “distracting”.

She told The Sun: “People who come to see me work ask questions and chat, I just really want to get the job done as quickly as possible without distractions.

“I just learned to ignore them.

“I don’t become a men’s mechanic, or just to impress anyone. I did it for myself.

“Why should I care what they think of me? The best thing is to ignore them.

“I don’t let myself be swayed by sexist comments.”

Tantin explains how she first set her sights on mechanical industry in high school, but the teachers don’t take the plan of entering the male-dominated world seriously.

“When I was in high school, they asked me what course I wanted to take,” she said.

“I said I was planning to be a mechanic – but they didn’t take it seriously, they thought I was joking.”

Despite the push of his teachers, Tantin went on to take an auto course at the age of 19 – and now works at his own shop.

“I’ve been seeing and playing with car parts since I was a kid and I think working on cars is great,” she said.

The mechanic said the best thing about her job is her sense of accomplishment.

But she also enjoys transitioning from glamorous photo shoots to getting off the car and getting dirty in the garage.

“I also model, so I have to put on really good makeup and be pretty – and then I get messy, get my hands dirty, don’t shower, just get really down when I do,” says Tantin. car work, I love it”.

But she admits working in a male-dominated industry has its obstacles.

She said: “Everything has advantages and disadvantages, because I am small, so I cannot carry heavy loads.

“But the good thing is that my hand is small enough that I can reach some nuts and screws that need tightening or loosening, which guys usually can’t do because their hands can be too big. That saves time.”

Tantin, who regularly shares snapshots of her craft on her Instagram page, said she would encourage other women to join the craft.

She said: “Don’t be jealous, just learn to make cars like I did.

“ANYONE can learn how to do it.”
