I love chemistry because of its crucial place in society and life. I am especially interested in encouraging the youth to study chemistry which most perceive to be very hard without realising how important it really is.

I have only come across the IYC 2011 today as I was browsing the web, and so do not have serious ideas but I would very much want to be a part of some activities to do with awareness raising. I am sure as I think about it more, ideas will start flowing.
