My parents and brother are all medical doctors now. I always wanted to be a physicist, so I suppose that is different to them! My parents actually told my brother not to be a doctor because it is a hard job with long hours. I like asking questions and finding out new answers that no one has ever found, and I think physics is the only subject where you can explain the whole universe.
i was the first in my family to go to university and my parents were very happy when i decide to do my Ph.D. in chemistry. However, I am not sure who influenced me. I think that i was lucky enough to find something I enjoyed doing.
