I am a Kenyan lady aged 28 years with a Bsc in Industrial Chemistry and currently enrolled in an MSC programme in Environmental Legislation and Management.

I am intrigued with the relationship of Chemistry and the Environment and how this can lead to a sustainable future for the younger generations.

I am interested in IYC 2011 because this forum will give me an opportunity to meet with professionals, who will give me more insight on the relationship of the Environment and Chemistry. This knowledge will enable me start up programmes in my home country, Kenya, that will lead to sustainable growth and a secured future for the younger generations.

Well done on all the effort you have put on IYC 2011 preparations and for giving us a chance to be able to participate and interract with you.

I look forward to working together to make IYC a success..
