    What made you want to study medicine?
    Pretty much grown up with it in my face. My mum worked as a nurse in a palliative care unit and I used to wait in the staff room for her to finish after I had been to my dad's so I came into contact with a lot of healthcare professionals from a young age. Apart from that though, pretty much the same as everyone else: love of anatomy; like speaking to new people; challenge of diagnosis/treatment and so on and so forth.

    Congrats on your offer from Glasgow. Must of been interesting being introduced to a hospital environment at an early age. I can imagine you can't wait to start the course!
