I recently graduted from kenyatta university after pursuing bachelor of science in chemistry. It was my choice to study the subject in depth after studying at O- level. During my O-level as I was doing the Chemistry practical and being the second group to get in to the lab, I realised that the person who was at my station changed chemicals so as I was doing the practical work ,my values were not the expected values. but still I managed to correct the chemicals and did the practical earning me more marks at the national exams. During my undergraduate study, at the 4th year level, I managed to do a project which also formed part of the requirements to the award of the degree. The project focused so much on a disadvantaged community and hence still want to use it to help people understand and appreciate chemistry at the local level. IYC is the best platforming in realising this ambition for the year 2011.
