I am working towards a worthwhile and interesting degree. I love that science is constantly advancing and there is always something new to learn about. I really enjoy everything about my degree course.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?

I think I was quite young when I realised I wanted to go into a career surrounding this as I realised that I was constantly being taught about male scientists and how they were responsible for our scientific development within our society. The lack of female role models made me even more eager to be involved and show that women are just as capable.
