As an undergraduate studying Chemistry I have become involved in many of the groups focused on bringing awareness to chemistry in the community. These groups have contributed to my success as a student and enlightened my perception of science as a whole. Also I am set to graduate in spring of 2011, the international year of chemistry, with a degree in chemistry I might add, and hence the IYC should prove to be a great opportunity to give back in this very transitional period of my life.
