My name is Jessa Marie V. Makabenta, a BS CHEMISTRY student here in the Universitiy of the Philippines, Los Banos. Chemistry is a very interesting field, however, only few are able to recognize this fact. For many, Chemistry is a very hard subject that makes students' life more difficult. Having a great passion towards Chemistry, I would like to share to the public and make them understand the very important role of Chemistry in everyone's life. I also would like to encourage students to engage more with Chemistry Lastly, I would also love to learn more about this matter.
