      I became inspired by teachers in school who were teaching technical subjects and I wanted be an engineer when I was 16. After leaving school engineering was an area which really interested me and I saw it as a really good platform to build a career from.

      I was 18 when I decided to study engineering, but I think I was inspired by agricultural engineering when I was 10.

      I’ve always been inspired by how the make extravagent buildings, or how something so complex works so maybe when I started high school? I didn’t know I wanted to be engineer until I looked into uni courses and wanted to study maths and chemistry
