      If i’m honest it not where I always saw myself ending up. I started in Architecture but wanted to do something where I felt I was making more of a difference in peoples lives.

      I was offered the Job in South Africa randomly and I took it because I felt it was a really good use of the skills I had to offer and a way it could make the most difference as one person. At the end of the day what we do there can save lives and I love the people there.

      The great thing about getting into science is that there are some many different things you can do within science and find something that you love and can also help others which isn’t the case with all careers.

      Thanks for the question

      My love of understanding of how things work was my main driving force for pursuing science. Like Dave, I love the fact that there are so many different avenues you can pursue!
