What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?
Science Subjects: Maths, Physics, Biology, Tech drawing, chemistry I loved these and they are very applicable for my current career path.
Data analysis and problem solving is all about number crunching at the end of the day when working on technical problems.
Arts, English, English Literature and French I was never really interested in at school but have become more interested in the last 10 years as they are very useful for communication purposes that is now a very big part of my job.
