What do you do?

I am a scientific PhD student carrying out a Pharmacology project looking at mitochondrial drug toxicity.

Why did you choose this field?

Through school I always enjoyed science and learning about the human body. As I learnt more I could see the certain topics I liked the most and persued them.

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

When I didn't get the grades I wanted at A-Level.

Why do you love working in STEM?

I like that I know my research will help people.

Best advice for next generation?

Just try your best and you will get where you want to be- there is always a way.
