      I had some family members who did different kinds of engineering, so they always encouraged my interest in science. Then i got lucky with some really good, engaging teachers in physics at secondary school, who made me believe i can contribute to it. I went to university studying physics and really it snowballed from there, i didnt really start working in space, or becoe interested in working in space until i was around 25, so it took me a long time to find what i wanted to do, but now i really enjoy it.
      Thanks for the question 🙂
