      You’d have to ask them 😉

      They were happy that I was doing something that I wanted to do – and still are even though I’m still a student at 29!

      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!

      Hi jakedadowg

      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!
