      Very nice catch reading my profile!! So as much as I loved doing art, I was thinking a little bit ahead of myself and wasn’t sure if I would be a good enough artist to make a living out of it! I think it’s a lot harder to become an artist than a scientist, because countries generally have more funding and more jobs for those in science. Don’t get me wrong – I love science as well, it’s completely different than art so it’s like comparing apples and pears 🙂
