Watch: Our interview with Hannah

I started out very disappointed in my A levels as I failed my As levels & had to retake them all. I went to UWE in Bristol and found my footing with education, however, I had a massive problem with confidence in my academic ability and thought I was just destined to be average. But [with encouragement] I went on to achieve some of the highest grades in the year; I got on the Dean's list and received an award and as a result of that, realised that I was capable of conducting science at quite a high level. And look at where I've come, I've finishing off my Phd at a Russell Group University, and I couldn't be more proud.
