      I started training to be a skiing instructor a few years ago but didn’t get around to finish it. Not such a good career choice if you want to live in the UK though. I’ve thought about maybe being a teacher or a management consultant. But I really do enjoy what I do – it’s very varied, and I can always go skiing for a week if I want to 🙂

      I’m not sure what I’d be If I wasn’t a scientist – I really love it. As hobbies I make stained glass panels and keep bees, but I wouldn’t make much money from either of those!
      I’m very good at reading lots of information, organising it and summarising it. I’m also pretty good at talking to people, so maybe I’d be able to use those skills as a teacher.
