      Because I always asked too many annoying questions xD
      At school I had lots of questions about everything, and it was strange when my teachers didn’t have all the answers! I then realised that even science doesn’t have ALL the answers, which I found fascinating – I became a scientists to help find at least some of those answers 🙂

      I think I got into science because my mum worked in a laboratory, and during the summer holidays I used to visit her lab and play with pipettes and microscopes, looking at things like hair and insects with the microscopes, I thought that was very cool.
