1. Why did you choose your major/concentration?
I began to like chemistry from high school. My high school teacher was so experienced and included real-life illustrations in his teaching. He worked with Firestone Rubber Company as a chemist. So, he taught the subject with such great enthusiasm. I always liked his class and made good grades at the time.
I remember him lecturing on the contribution of Marie Curie to science – radioactivity. He said this was a female with such high work. I got more interested because, I said to myself, I can do chemistry as well. I wanted to learn more and gain a better understanding of the various fields. My emphasis in polymer chemistry deepened when I started graduate studies at CAU. My advisor, Dr. Mintz is such a knowledgeable person, with his mentorship I am excited for this field.Read More
