Sorry, I think I’m slightly confused by this question! Are you asking if I would chose to do science if I could go back and pick again (and then help others)? If so, yes! I would probably still choose to do what I am doing now if I had a chance to redo everything.
I don’t think I’d change much about what I’ve done in my life so far – it hasn’t always been straightforward and there have been setbacks in lots of different times, but I think I’d still want to be a scientist, I’d still be ok with the route I took to get here, and I’d definitely still want to be using this website 🙂
I’d definitely still want to study science and work in science, but I’m not sure I would do a PhD again, knowing what I know now. It hasn’t really gotten me anywhere job-wise as there are so many applicants and so few jobs.
