It all started in a biology class at Excelsior Secondary School some 20 years ago. Back then, it was mere enthusiasm for the subject and a love for the outdoors that made Joy Leaner realise for certain that she wanted a career in environmental research. That energy has since evolved into a passion that is driven by sheer determination and aided by a natural flair and talent. It has blossomed into a PhD at a top university in the USA (courtesy of a Fulbright scholarship), publication in various peer-reviewed journals and a promising career at the CSIR.
