      My best moment was probably graduating from my Masters at Imperial College London in the Royal Albert Hall in front of thousands of people!

      One of the funding applications I wrote got £30,000 , but unfortunately I was not able to put my name down as the applicant since I was too junior, so it wasn’t technically awarded to me. The next biggest award would be £600 for a summer placement.
      Best moment is probably when I passed my PhD (last ever exam! and I can officially be called “doctor”)

      I was awarded the ‘Roger Gilbert Prize in Genetics, for outstanding performance in genetics’ when I graduated from my undergraduate in genetics, that was cool! It was for my undergraduate research on the frequency of repeats in the human genome.
