      I suspect I might be a maths or chemistry teacher.

      A chef, I’ve always enjoyed cooking!

      It’s hard to imagine not being a chemist… but I always loved art and acting when I was in school, so maybe I’d do that.

      I actually think if I wasn’t doing this I would quite like to be a pharmacist – so at the other side of the drug discovery process, prescribing the drugs to the people who need them! But, even now, I meet people who do jobs and I’m like…what on earth is that!? There might be another job I’d love and I don’t even know it exists as a job.

      Everyone says that I am really funny; so perhaps I would try to do acting as a comedian 🙂
