      Hello! Being a scientist is fun! It is a hard job and you have many days where your experiments are failing or not giving you the results you expected. But I guess you have good and bad days in every job!
      I love being in the lab and working on my samples trying to discover new molecules! I also enjoy teaching students and training people who are just starting in the lab.
      Part of my job involves field trips to collect samples and also a lot of travelling to scientific meetings all over the world! I enjoy meeting new people and chatting about research!
      So yes, I think being a scientist is fun!
