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

The subjects I took at shool all influenced me in different ways. English is very necessary in how I represent myself, Maths is oh so important in so many ways from yarn calculations to understanding numeric’s in business.

Art was very influential in my career path. I was introduced to Impressionism and Monet who is a major inspiration in my current work and marketing mix. 

I wish I was better at Irish and I would use it in my business marketing. History influenced how I relate to current affairs, Home Economics is vital in developing my needlecraft skills which is an important aspect of my business. 

Biology, well I do enjoy gardening as a hobby and my husband is a student psychiatric nurse so a knowledge of biology has come in useful over the years.

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

The subjects I did in school have not had any impact on my career path. The only subject that could relate to what I do now was woodwork; I always enjoyed timber and working with it. Maybe subconsciously this helped me to make a decision.

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

I loved languages in school, and continue to love them now, which I think has definitely been the biggest influence on my career. I went to an all Irish primary school, then began German in secondary school and took up Japanese in TY.
