Question: Did your family members/relatives encourage and support you to become a scientist? What did they think of your choice? What do they think now?

  1. My family is very supportive because I am doing what I love

  2. When I said I wanted to do a PhD (a 3 year research degree that earns you the title of ‘doctor’) I think my parents were a bit concerned that another 3 years of being s student and not earning much money would be a bit difficult for me when my friends that went straight into work after university started earning quite a bit of money.
    Once they saw that I was happy and doing what I loved they were very supportive though- they always read my scientific papers even though they dont really understand 🙂
