      I was pretty naturally good at science, yes, but I worked very hard too! I think being good at something is as much about hard work, commitment and enthusiasm as it is about natural talent.

      I found it interesting so I didn’t mind studying it. So I’m not sure if I liked it because I was good at it, or I was good at it because I studied it!

      I was quite good at it but I also had to work very hard at it. Luckily I enjoyed it a lot so I enjoyed working hard at it. You should find something in life that you enjoy and that you’re good at and pursue it. For me it was science!
