Questions & Answers

Why did you choose Chemistry as a field of study?

I tried a few other majors before chemistry (social work, earth science), but I was never good at memorizing random facts, so they didn’t really draw me in. However, in chemistry, everything seemed to be connected in a logical way, and I enjoyed making the clues fit together and having a detailed understanding of chemical systems. Also, my mom has a biochemistry degree, so I figured if she could do it, so can I!
