You can do it, take it from Lexi herself: “Let me let you in on a little secret. My first semester in my university jewelry class, I wouldn’t light the torch. I was terrified to light the torch. I always got the cute guy that sat next to me to light my torch for me. And one day he was absent. The teacher wouldn’t do it for me, so I had to light it myself. And you know what, it’s not that difficult. You can overcome your fear. And now, it seems that I have gotten so well known about soldering and working with the torches that my nickname among all my friends is Lexi the Torch.”
