I picked the wrong subject for Uni for my Bachelor’s degree – Vet science. Ever since I was little I thought I wanted to be a vet, but the dedication you needed to be a vet is really hard work. Shifts were tiring, and sometimes you’d have work in the middle of the night due to an emergency.
Afterwards, I did a Masters in something I actually liked – software engineering. I found out I liked it because whilst studying for my Vet degree I took a statistics course and that’s how I found out about my passion for it.
My lesson for University students? Just because you’ve started doing something you don’t like, doesn’t mean that you’re stuck on it forever.
