      In early school years I was equally interested in all subjects’ history, art, and languages….. At this point in time I had no idea, what I wanted to be. Near to my GCSE level, I started becoming more interested in science especially I use to love Physics and Biology. Towards my A levels, I was almost positive that I wanted become an engineer or physicist; though I was not sure which kind of engineer I wanted to be.

      When I was a kid, the first thing I wanted to be was a dolphin trainer (Don’t ask me why, I think I wanted to be this after I visited Sea World in the U.S.!). After than I wanted to be a writer… and after that, I wanted to be a doctor.

      When I was in high school, I realized that even though I was interested in medicine, I was also interested in doing science experiments and reading about biology, chemistry, and physics. Since I was good at math and physics, and I loved biology, it made perfect sense to go into Biological Engineering!

      Lots of things, including: a magician; professional rock-climber; actor; train driver; astronomer; chimney sweep; wood carver…
      It took me a long time to work out I should be an engineer

      When I was younger I wanted to do lots of things. When I was growing up I always wanted to be a famous actress.

      When I got a little older I wanted to be a Nanny the same as Princess Diana.
      I did that for a few years but it wasn’t challenging enough and I went into the hospitality industry. Now that is HARD work and most of the time, it’s not very well paid. I got bored of that too before very long and decided to become an engineer.

      I wanted to be a doctor when i was really little. Then I wanted to be a primary school teacher, then back to a doctor. In my teens I decided to be an engineer.
