Have been working in Japanese inorganic chemical firm more than 8 years. UNESCO is always inspirational motivator for me in terms of raising the importance of education. From my career in which I focused on Inkjet technology, chemistry is one of the most important educational issues to conserve our planet earth and it can change the world for the better. Through this IYC I want to get involeved in what I can do in Japan where many people are still struggling to get lives back.
