My USW experience has been enjoyable, practical and unique, says Abi

Abi has always had a passion for science. What drew her to STEM at USW was the opportunity to study Forensics and work on investigations, crime, problem-solving and practical learning. She sums up her experience at USW as 'enjoyable, practical and unique'. 

"A lot of people just see you as another mind, they don’t see you as a woman. You’re just another person who’s got the qualifications or the passion. 

Don't give up. It can get hard at times, science. There's a lot of maths and it can be complicated – but there are always ways around that.

Science is always changing: a lot of the time, there isn't really a single answer or solution, so you’re always learning new things. 

I want to go into chemical, biological and radiological warfare. Science really underpins that, so you need to have a good knowledge of how those agents work."
