"I think my career advice would be: try to not listen to too much advice! I think that as females we are just absolutely inundated with information about how we can live our best lives, and all it really does is act to drown out your own gut instinct. Instead, really try and listen to yourself, and I think deep down you'll know what's the right thing to do."
