I think Chemistry is one of the most important sciences together with Physics and Philosophy, because it increases our knowlodge about the behavior of Universe.

I am 13, so this science is a new experience to me. However, as everybody I have practiced it since my childhood.

This year my goal is to generate enthusiasm among teenager as me about Chemistry.

I really want to celebrate the role of women in Chemistry, and other sciences.

Maybe, I will perform a proyect this year to increase the public appreciation of science.
