      Since I was younger, I was always really curious/nosy about things, how they worked and where they came from. It wasn’t obvious to me then that perhaps science could provide most of those answers. It was only really once I went to secondary school that I realised I really enjoyed science class, particularly biology class, and I realised it wasn’t all about just learning things off by heart all the time, you could ask questions and investigate new things too.
