      Since I was little and watched Jurassic Park and thought scientists had really cool jobs! I never thought I could actually do it though…
      Turns out it’s just as good as real life even without dinosaurs

      I had a really cool teacher when I was about 8 years old who taught us all about the constellations and the stars. I loved everything about Space so I wanted to do something with Space (still not really knowing what exactly I wanted to do..). I probably started to think about seriously becoming a scientist until I was 16 years old when I was chosing which A levels to do. It wasn’t until after I got to University when I was in my early 20s that I got interested in what I do now as a job.
