I fell in love with chemistry during my first college semester when we had to extract and identify an oil from cloves. Fortunately, this fascination persisted throughout my university studies and kept me going. Even during that time, I had a very narrow idea about what my degree would give me access to on the job market. I certainly never thought I would have the job I have now. It would be interesting to depolarize peoples perseption about what a chemist is and show them the vast applications that chemistry has outside of a laboratory.
