      This is suuuch a hard question!

      Ok, lets be unrealistic and say that I have unlimited money and unlimited time:

      I would make a program to fund routes into university and academia for people from minority backgrounds: disabled people, LGBT+ people, ethnic minorities, refugees, older people that missed their chance when they were younger due to problems at school. I think that diversity is so important – it takes a lot of different sorts of people to do science, but right now there aren’t that many different kinds of people in science. I would spend my money helping all kinds of people reach their dreams.
