Hey jakedadowg. My parents have always been really supportive of me studying science. They seem to be happy as long as I’m doing something that I enjoy. I’ve really approeciated their support, especially when I told them that my study would take me round the other side of the world, to the UK!
My parents were really happy for me because they could see how interested I was in science, and in particular in chemistry, so they knew I had made the right decision for me. Now, they always ask me about how things are going and if I have made any discoveries lately!
