      Yes, I am very lucky. My Grandparents were particularly proud that I decided to do a PhD as I’m the first in the family.

      Yes. My Grandfather keeps on asking me when I’ll be a “doctor” (hopefully soon, just finishing my PhD).

      My family had little interest in my choice of career, so I experienced more indifference than support.

      Yes! They all think it’s great and very different to my parents jobs in social work.
