When I was 10…

I wanted to be an astronaut.

I remember the days I spent with a cardboard helmet on my head sat in a larger cardboard box. I wanted to see all the things I saw in my books for myself. I wanted to float weightlessly sailing at warp speed into the unknown.

I am now an Astrophysics student at the University of Central Lancashire. I suppose my aspiriations drifted towards being the person to send the astronauts up, to research and investigate from a distance. My childhood aspirations and my present ambitions are very connected, very similar.

What ever career my degree will lead me to, be it research or teaching, I will always be close to my inner child’s dream.
