Yoojin is completing her BSc in Chemistry Specialization program at the University of Alberta. As an immigrant, she has a deep appreciation of having a supportive community. This has influenced her to advocate for creating an inclusive community for chemistry undergraduate students. During COVID-19, she has worked to provide services and connections to many students through involvement in the Chemistry Students Association. She also volunteered as one of the research panel and open house panels for the Chemistry department.
Currently, she's working as an intern at Guardian Chemicals. She has seen how chemistry can improve the current day-to-day products that people use. She also has grown a deeper appreciation of how the industry is slowly shifting toward greener and safer product usage. She wishes to further influence the work, industry, and market in the future and she plans to study more to achieve her goal.>> About the Scholarship
