I haven’t always wanted to be a scientist. I used to want to be a travel agent! I have had people tell me not to be one or that I wouldn’t be good enough. Sometimes, because I’m a girl, people have made things harder for me. Thankfully, I have had really amazing bosses and coworkers to support me and help me keep going. 🙂 My family and teachers have helped me stay in science and I’m so grateful for their help.
I wanted to be a vet! Which meant I still had to study science! Yes, I had a career guidance teacher who told me I wouldn’t be able for science and that I should be a teacher because it would be easier for me to achieve. Listen to people who tell you can’t do something and take it and use it as a motivation! That teacher did not know me very well and most of the time the people that say you can’t do something don’t know you very well. I am lucky that my parents and family and friends are super supportive!
