I've always loved science, being outside, insects and collecting bugs. I don't think it was until the last couple of years at high school that I realised that you could do that as a job. I love the idea that you're discovering something that no one else in the world knows. It's really exciting to feel like you're contributing something.Erinn Fagan-Jeffries - PhD candidate
