I´m a student and I'd like to promote the Chemistry Education and increase the public appreciation and understanding of it. In general, Chemistry is misunderstood as a very difficult science, but we know that it is not. I expect to make a change in the people's mind and convert this year in an approximation to a deep study of it, to create the need in supporting investigation and make a change in our professional field, for helping my country to find a solution for the economical and development problems. Everything's Chemistry and is so important for understand the world, our life and our future.
