  • Question from Nikki

    What subjects did you study in high school?

    Answer from Amy: 

    Hi Nikki

    Thank you for your question! I spent the junior years of high school (grade 8-10) trying a range of subjects to figure out what I really enjoyed. I dabbled in graphics design, drama, woodworking, and advanced science, along with all the usual prerequisites (english, maths, physical education etc.). In my senior years, I locked down on english, maths B, Italian, logic and philosophy, chemistry, and biology. Best of luck for your studies!

    Answer from Cecile: 

    Hello Nikki!

    Thank you for your question. In high school, I wasn’t sure about what I wanted to do as a job so I decided to study quite a broad range of topics. The, from 18 to 20 years old, I specialised in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Geology and from 20 to 24 years old, I did a Master’s degree in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. I am using most of these skills in my daily work: Although my PhD has a strong focus on Agriculture, it includes many disciplines and areas of research.
