Medicine? Yes! Engineering? Yes! But chemistry? Better not. “When people in Zimbabwe say that they want to study chemistry, most people ask: ‘What will you do with it?’ “, tells Lisa Tichagwa. “They normally suggest other subjects.” The 21-year-old nevertheless decided to study chemistry at Jacobs University Bremen. Now she has been awarded the August Wilhelm von Hofmann scholarship of the German Chemical Society (GDCh) for her outstanding academic achievements – and she feels satisfied with her choice. “The scholarship shows me that I made the right decision.”
