Q: What advice would you give to young people seeking a career in this field?
“Whatever you’re going into, just make the most of it. If you can, speak up for yourself. Develop that network and don’t be afraid to ask for help. It’s amazing how many people will help you, mentor you or sponsor you. Sometimes all it takes is you asking the question. They say ‘if you don’t ask, you don’t get’ but some people find that quite a hard thing. It took me a while to understand, but sometimes that’s just how things work. Sometimes you’ve just got to ask.”
