      I love my job but if I wasn’t doing this I’d like to be doing something in conservation or environmental work. Something that works to reversing all the damage people have caused to the world in the past.

      I’d probably be working as a graphic designer or a product designer. I’m really into art and design. You don’t have to be totally focused on one type of job or career. I find having skills as an artist is really useful in my job as a biomedical engineer.

      Sometimes I think I’d like to be a teacher. I love when I work with college students and help them with projects. It’s a really fun part of the job working with students.
      I don’t think I give up engineering though I enjoy it too much.

      I think an Architect, because I love design, or a Vet, because I love animals

      If I was not doing this I would probably be travelling for a few years and working as I go, I have definitely developed a passion for travelling and seeing different parts of the world. A job where I was paid to travel would be ideal but I doubt they are easy to come by.

      I’m really into science and engineering and love my job. However, if I was not an engineer, probably I would be working as a science teacher.
