"It was my freshman year in college. I was taking the "weed out" courses of the premed (biomedical science) major that I'd signed up for. I found myself spending countless hours at the library studying, reading, and practicing- chemistry. Chem 101 was a tough class, but I was feeling inspired by the content. I wanted to read about it. I wanted to practice the problems. I wanted to learn as much as I could. It seemed to be the perfect mix of science and math to satisfy my brain, and, simply put, I was fascinated. I knew right then and there that I'd be changing my major to chemistry.
