What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

I left school early so my school subjects had little influence on my current job.

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

Subject choice really does matter. I took Applied Maths, Physics and Chemistry for the Leaving Cert and having not studied Biology I found that hard in first year in college.

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

When I was young, going on to third-level education was not something everyone did or could do I had to go straight to work when I finished secondary school. This was difficult as I wanted to go to art college but could not. However, as I was working (in graphic design) I paid for myself to go to college at night and did a Diploma in Art in Industry and Commerce. To fulfill my needs I also did courses in life drawing at night in the National College of Art and Design which I totally loved. There is no hindsight worth pursuing, as what happened is in the past and I got on with my life in my own way, with my own drive.
