I really didn’t know what I wanted to do at all – I just followed my interests: art, science, and geography. Map-making lets me do all three at once!

I also had no idea what I wanted to do – I think it’s very common when you are young! The best advice I can give is to follow your passions and do something you love and are really interested in 🙂 I went to art college and took it from there!

I had always wanted to work with animals, albeit at first with live animals. So I am pretty close to what I have always wanted to do.

Yeah I had no idea either, it was something I discovered I liked doing (i.e. researching using documents) and away I went
