I have a confession to make. During the time that I worked at the University of the Witwatersrand, I always felt as though I was a pseudo-academic. When I left school, my parents wanted me to become a teacher. As a 17 year old, I rebelled. The last thing on earth I wanted to do was to become a teacher. And deal with rebellious teenagers? Absolutely not! So I went straight into medical technology, and found that I loved medical microbiology. Bugs were much more interesting to me than kids. However, eventually I needed a new career, and decided that pharmacy was an excellent option. It was. I fell in love with organic chemistry on the first day that I attended class. It took a bit longer with the other courses, but I knew that I was in the right place at the right time for me.
