Hello! My name is Michaela and I will be your guide during the 2018 International Chemistry Olympiad. I am a first year biochemistry student at Masaryk University in Brno. At high school, Chemistry Olympiad was one of my favourite competitions to participate in. In my free time I do ballet, Pilates, I enjoy reading and watching movies of all sorts. Other hobbies of mine are travelling, visiting new places and meeting new people. Estonia is undoubtedly a beautiful country that has been on my travel bucket list for quite some time now. I hope to get to know a lot about you and your culture. I am looking forward to extending the circle of foreign friends of mine. I can’t wait to get to know all of you and help you get the most out of your IChO experience. I believe that we will have a great time here in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. See you in July!
