What Science subjects are you studying/have you studied?
I’m currently studying Unit 4 Biology, and I studied elective chemistry in Year 10.
What do you enjoy most about studying science?
In Biology, I’m interested in how life works together, and the biological principles of life.
When was your interest in science first sparked?
Going to work with my mother as a young child. She is a GP, so I grew up hearing all of these complicated medical terms. I could say amoxicillin when I was two and spell it when I was five.
Do you hope to study science beyond Year 12?
I was thinking about a Bachelor of Science at La Trobe and transferring over to study Pharmacy, but being a classical musician, I realised how much I would miss music… so now I have my heart set on a Bachelor of Music Performance (majoring in classical piano) at the Melbourne Conservatory of Music, which is a far cry from science!
If you could one day have a career in a branch of science, what would it be?
If I did choose to go down a science pathway, I would probably study Pharmacy. My dad is a pharmacist, and as a child I would often go to work with him, so I think the interest will always be there.
Tell us a favourite scientific fact.
This might not really count as a scientific fact, but the letters J and Q do not appear in the Periodic Table of Elements!
