Dear Rosanna,

I have been a forensic scientists for 27 years. I enjoy my job and believe that it was worth all of the studying that I did.

As a young boy, I enjoyed science. I read science textbooks on my own, loved Biology and knew that I wanted to do something in science. At first, I was pre-med. Then I thought of becoming a professor and teaching biology. I became a forensic scientist quite by accident but have enjoyed it.

You state that you want to be a forensic scientist and mention C.S.I.. The job is really nothing like C.S.I.. Here are some sites that may help explain what we do: section_id=resources&page_id=choosing_a_career

I recommend going into a field because you love it. I loved science so my job was a good fit. Then all the studying won't seem so difficult because you'll find that you enjoy reading it.
