I am Corazon R. Nerves, a Secondary School Teacher handling Chemistry at Gabi National High School, Gabi, Compostela, Compostela Valley Province, 8803 Philippines. The school is located in a remote area at the boundaries of three municipalities of Compostela Valley with a population of 700 students.

My school assignment includes being the Girl Scout Coordinator and the Youth for the Environment in Schools Organization (YES-O) Adviser in our school. Both organizations suppoerts the drive to preserve, protect and conserve the environment.

I am also one of the founders of the Compostela Research Center for Social Development, Inc.(CRCSD) a non-government organization in our community whose extenal affairs include volunteers to be exposed to remote places whose villagers & some indigenous peoples suffers extreme poverty.

My membership to the Philippine Association of Chemistry Teachers (PACT) enhanced my interest to the subject and would like to maximize my learning through its application in our community.

I would like to contribute to the IYC Global Chemistry Experiment since my work and activities can reach several communities in our place in Compostela Valley.
