      Hey leena, I guess I choose to be a scientists during my GCSE’s, when I realised I really liked thinking through problems and was very curious. I was a scientist beforehand as I have always been curious about the world, but that was the first time I knew I wanted to work in science and find out how the world ticks. So I guess that makes it about 10 years 🙂

      Well, I’m in mid-40’s now, so probably for at least 30 years

      Ever since the age that I was tall enough to stand on the toilet seat cover to reach my Mum’s lotions and creams in the bathroom cupboard. I must have been a nightmare as a toddler. Thank heavens eBay didn’t exist then, or it could have been a very different story for me!

      Hi leena. It depends when you count it as becoming a scientist. I’m 24 now, so if you take the beginning of GCSEs as the start about 10 years.
