      Tricky! I’m not sure I would try to persuade anyone to do a job that they didn’t think sounded interesting. But what I would say is that science careers are incredibly diverse. My own job gives me the opportunity to work on solving problems, manage my own time and be taught by world experts. I choose what I do each day and I love that independence. I also like knowing that what we are working on could help people who are very unwell. Because there are so many different ways of pursuing a science career I feel like there is something for everybody as long as they are curious about the world and driven to find out more.
