Many things! They were all related to science, such as an astronaut, doctor, scientist. It wasn’t until during my GSCEs that I decided that I really enjoyed science, and wanted to become a scientist, working in a lab with my white coat and “cool” lab goggles! I don’t have the crazy hair of a scientist, but I have everything else! What about yourself?
To be over 5 ft tall and married to Robbie Williams. Neither of these things have happened yet, but you never know.
Careerwise, I had no idea. I knew that it would be something that involved logic and very little writing or drawing, as I’ve always been really terrible at anything creative. I went through phases of being something related to whatever it was that I liked most at the time (I wanted to be a football statistician for a while. No idea why. I think this was when David Beckham was cute…), but I’m really pleased that I’ve come back to a path that I love. I know that I would always be able to change if I really wanted to do something else, so everything is possible.
What do you want to do, and has this changed over time?
I really wanted to be a bar tender which I was about 8, then a comedian for a few years. By the time I was in secondary school I wanted to be a doctor but decided I didn’t really like sick people which would have made that difficult 🙂
Loads of things, until I had a computer then I still wanted to do loads of things but only if they included computers 🙂 I even went on a Royal Navy careers trip and spent a week finding out what it would be like to be in the Navy.
