      I can’t remember a time when I didn’t like science. It’s something I’ve grown up with a love for! My interests have expanded hugely from when I was younger, and that’s why science is great its so varied and there’s always more to find out and discover!

      I had a big interest in science when I was younger, but I was big into music and theatre and drama, and I thought that meant that I was bad at science. I couldn’t have been more wrong! In secondary school, in 5th year, I realised I really, really loved biology. I also took physics, and music and French. I was much better at biology than physics, and then I decided to take science at university. So even though I thought science was interesting when I was young, I never would have believed you if you’d told me I’d become a scientist!

      Definitely- I was a huge nerd, always watching Indiana Jones, Star Wars and the like. All the heroes were professors and scientists… plus it’s very cool to understand the nature in your back yard!

      I did, but I liked lots of other things too đŸ™‚ Science was fun in my primary and secondary school, and it gradually became my favourite subject.

      I didn’t love or hate science when I was younger – I was just more interested in art and sports! I wasn’t very good at it which is probably why I didn’t love it at the time. But as I went through secondary school, it started to really grow on me – I never gave up on it and worked hard – and in university I really loved it!
