I worked as a make-up artist for many years and I enjoyed it. But I always loved being outdoors and travelling to see mountains and rivers etc. So I decided to start studying in the evenings after work to get a qualification in natural science.
Eventually I got the qualifications to get into uni to study ecology (environmental science) and it was the best decision ever.
I still love make up and I love wearing make up (Kat von D and MAC are my faves), but I love being a scientist so much more!
Science has kept me busy and I am never bored which is great! It is full of questions that need to be answered and you add you piece of findings/knowledge to a large jigsaw puzzle trying to understand how the world around us works.
