Why do you volunteer with Let’s Talk Science? Science outreach is so much fun! I enjoy sharing my passion and excitement for science as well as teaching students and adults how interesting science is, especially chemistry. Now, as a CurioCity volunteer, I enjoy exploring and writing about cool aspects of science that are shared online and can reach an even bigger audience.

 Fun fact: I’ve climbed the CN tower in Toronto twice. It’s 553 meters tall and has 1776 stairs!
