On becoming a teacher:
I find Chemistry interesting and hope I can inspire some of my students to take an interest in the subject. I find it rewarding when students express a desire to pursue the subject further. I find that teaching is a great way of learning and vice versa. It brings balance to my life and is an opportunity to give something back. I am interested in many things, such as advances in science and technology, politics, travel etc. I believe one should always try to broaden one's knowledge. Therefore, apart from being a teacher to convey knowledge, I am also always a student.

Inspirational people:
I admire people who have the determination to pursue their dreams and overcome whatever difficulties they may face.

Top tip to my younger self:
What's done is done. There's no going back. Just remind yourself not to make the same mistakes again. Hopefully, one will get wiser as one get older.
