The whole thing has got me thinking about growing up with such a love of this television show. It was really where my passion for Science came from. I actually enrolled in a Forensic Science course at university, all because I wanted to be just like Scully. Unfortunately, it wasn't all power suits and chasing aliens and I struggled after not picking the right subjects for my HSC, but it still got me to where I am today - still with a love of Science.
Gillian Anderson's character, Dana Scully, is one of the strongest role models for females in television that was ever created. She isa highly intelligent woman who stood up for herself against her partner as well as the 'big bad' government - never afraid to tell them how she really felt. The thing I really love about Scully is she always wants proof. It's great to see a strong woman who doesn't just take people's word without having hard evidence to back it up. This was her biggest struggle throughout the 9 seasons. She didn't believe in half of the cases that she was working on, but she always did her job with integrity and dignity.
My biggest hope now is that they find it as exciting to work through as I have to create it!!
