When selecting Chemistry as an undergraduate major, I saw it as challenge and a different way of thinking, not a gateway to a lab or medical school. Chemistry is the study of understanding macroscopic phenomena through atomic interactions. It mirrors the essence of keeping an eye on the big picture while attending to the details -- a quality that is highly regarded for any industry especially future leaders.
I hope all chemistry students will see chemistry as relevant and interesting to study. It may take some time to understand some concepts, but approaching it by asking questions and trying to see connections brings great feelings of reward and accomplishment.
