While working towards a master’s degree in global health, I realised that academia was not for me, but I wasn’t sure what other options were available. I started looking for a role that combines science with writing and creative thinking, while also offering a healthy work–life balance. I first heard of MedComms at a university careers event and was drawn to the idea of working outside of a lab, but still within science, by writing about the latest research on different diseases.
Choosing a career is never easy – at least, it wasn’t for me! Growing up, I wanted to be a teacher, an actress, a businesswoman…, but the one consistency was my innate curiosity about things, particularly about nature. From there, I evolved an ever-growing passion for science, and a belief in the importance of an educated and communicative society. Growing up in Brazil I saw a lot of inequality; because of that I wanted security, a good salary and benefits, a job where I could relocate if I needed or wanted to and, most importantly, a good work–life balance so that I could travel and once again have hobbies that I enjoyed growing up, like dancing and playing tennis.
