      Hi eviemay,
      I don’t know for sure! As with many boys, I wanted to be a footballer when I was quite young, a policeman as I got a bit older (my eyesight wasn’t good enough). I’ve generally wanted to do things that help people in some way,s shape or form, and I would probably enjoy work as a counsellor.

      Hi eviemay,
      I think I would be a medical writer. They don’t do the studies and experiments but they recieve the results and their job is to write the results up into a report or a paper. They have to klnow a lot about their area of science they write about so I’d still be able to learn lots of things without being so hands-on.
