      My dad. He’s a biomedical engineer and he encouraged me to do summer camps and work placements while I was in secondary school. I resented it at the time but looking back, I’m glad he pushed me to do those things.

      My Mum and Dad as they always encouraged me to be curious and to explore. I also love gardening which meant I would fix things around the garden and help my parents which made me like building thinks even more. 🙂
      I also found inspiration in movies such as Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I loved the spacecraft and the technology they had on board, it made me think I could build something like that. 🙂
      I also found inspiration in just looking at the stars at night, as it is fascinating wondering what might be out there. 🙂 🙂 🙂
