Jimmy Samuel, Zambia. A second-year Master’s student

I decided to become a chemist because I like doing research and discovering something new, for example, a cure for cancer. 

In my country, there are a lot of chemists specializing in various areas. They are predominantly employed at highly profitable companies, as well as hospitals. I hope I’ll be able to discover something new that will help my country to shoot ahead. 

I feel at home here. It’s quiet and peaceful everywhere. I can walk along the street at any time of the day. I like Russia and Russians. They are the most amiable people in the world. 

I’d definitely recommend that my young compatriots get chemical education in Russia. There are well-equipped laboratories here. Teachers are always ready to help students. And, most importantly, Mendeleev University trains true professionals in their field.
