      I first saw this on my Twitter feed and checked it out. I like interacting with young people (I’m not that old myself!) and introducing them to science. So what better way than entering I’m a Scientist? Besides, I wanted to give something back to my Secondary school by sponsoring student projects. Hence, the money (if I win) will come in handy!

      To talk to students, to show that scientists are (mostly sort of) normal people. And same as Daphne, I like talking to young people.
