Dr Miny Walker

Radiologist

“I’m a doctor. My speciality is looking inside people to see what’s wrong with them. So for instance if you hurt your wrist, I have lots of clever tools to look inside and see if there’s a broken bone.

“Every day at work I learn something, and I meet all sorts of interesting people. “To become a doctor you have to work hard at school, stay on to do A-levels, and then study for 4-5 years at university. It does take a long time, but it’s a really good job, exciting and worthwhile. “At school I wanted to be a dancer or a photographer. In a way I suppose I am a photographer, making pictures of what’s inside people. “My grandfather said, ‘That’s no job for a woman.’ That really inspired me to do it, in spite of what he thought!” One of the children asked what Dr Miny does not like about her job. “That’s such a good question! Your teachers would probably say this too: there is a lot of work but not enough time to get everything done. I try my best, but there is not enough of me.” “The advice I’d give you is what I tell my own children: do what you love and do it well, and you’ll end up where you want to be.” After assembly Dr Miny visited Nursery and Reception to show them the bones inside your hand, and a baby in a mummy’s ‘tummy’, that is her womb.
