Chemistry is a fascinating subject area and I am currently attempting to learn independently about this ever expanding area. When I was at school chemistry was not really a subject that was promoted as an interesting area of study for girls so, unfortunately, I missed out on a subject that could have led to a career in the sciences. This is why I think that this international year of chemistry is an ideal opportunity to promote chemistry in general and, most importantly, to publicise it in schools and demonstrate how interesting and rewarding the subject can be.
