Am a Pharmacy student from Ghana. I have the passion and interest in chemistry which i will pursue my graduate and post-graduate degree in Medicinal Chemistry. In the 2011 International Year of Chemistry i will want to educate the my dear people of Ghana to appreciate and understand Chemistry as a Course and Profession and encourage young people to pursue Chemistry in higher levels by organizing Seminars, float, fairs , Debates and symposiums. For example how Chemistry can help in the Agricultural sector to improve production and other fields Because Most of the people don't know the essence of a chemist in this modern world. They only know about a medical Doctor and don't even know the Doctor learned chemistry when he or she was in school and still learn.
