      I don’t believe in predestination… I’ve just chosen to follow a career path that I enjoy and succeed in.

      I don’t think that you are born with a path already made for you. You choose who you want to be and what you want to do with/in your life. I was born on this earth and I chose to become a scientist and do research

      I was born on this earth to my parents who never had any career in science. I chose a career path of scientific research on chemistry as I am passionate about the subject.

      Nah, I don’t think I had enough natural ability in the subject to think I was necessarily born to do it! We get to pick the path we follow and I picked chemistry because I liked it and I worked hard studying it to get the job I have now.
