      Hi emma! Thanks for voting for me! I think I need all the votes I can get! 🙂

      I was about 13 or 14 when I decided that engineering was the right choice for me. Lots of people don’t decide until much later though. If I wasn’t an engineer, I think I might like to be a science teacher, or maybe a police officer.

      It’s great that you want to be engineer – did you want to be one before you started doing this? My advice would to try and find an area of engineering that really interests and inspires you, at times learning to be an engineer can be quite hard work – so if you find it interesting and enjoyable then that makes it so much easier! Don’t be put off by a bit of hard work either, you’ll have a really great career waiting for you at the other end. Good luck!
