Teachers who have altered my life: My high school chemistry teacher, Mr. Upton, and my biology teachers, Mrs. Richardson and Mr. Fuller, were instrumental in fostering my enthusiasm for science. They all had a remarkable ability to make their respective subjects not only engaging but fun, even outside a budding interest in the sciences.
In my time off, I enjoy: Reading (especially sci-fi), cooking, playing my ukuleles/guitar, disc golfing, and playing boardgames with friends.
What profession, other than your own, would you enjoy? Had I not went into science, I think I would have liked to be a chef.
