I am the first generation in my family to go to University, and to college! I am the only one that had the opportunity to ‘formally’ study science, but I think science extends way beyond what you can learn in school. For example, my family like watching David Attenborough TV shows, and camped out to watch the lunar eclipse a few years ago.
Also, we all liked watching Breaking Bad, but I’m not sure that counts as science!! 😉
Unfortunately i am the only family member who has been privileged to get to university. I came from a broken home where no one educated me as my mother could not read or write but i always had determination to better myself and i pushed myself hard to achieve what i have now.
