      Jedi Knight.

      Back-up plan was marine biologist, volcanologist, space scientist (eyy), or novelist. Might take up that last one some day.

      When I was very young I actually wanted to be a pilot, the idea of flying around high in the sky felt quite exciting. At some point in the future I would still like to learn and get a pilots licence.

      I wanted to be a professional athlete and go to the Olympics! You have to be amazing to do that and not get injured like me. So, Science was my back -up plan and I wanted to work at ground control at NASA

      I was really stuck as a kid, as I wanted to do everything in phases. In fact I found my diary and I did desperately want to be an astronaut…

      I went through phases and changed my mind constantly, but the best phase was flying planes in air cadets 🙂

      The best advice I can give you is that you don’t really know what you are passionate about unless you give it a try 🙂
