Hello! My name is Roman and I will be your guide during the IChO. First of all, I would like to congratulate you on your great achievement – representation of your country on the IChO!
When I heard that the 50th IChO will be held in Slovakia and Czech Republic, I couldn’t have missed the opportunity to participate in it once again, this time as a guide, and meet some motivated and talented high school students from all over the world.
A few facts about me: I was born in a small town in western Slovakia called Prievidza. Currently I am studying organic chemistry at the Masaryk University in Brno (the second biggest city in the Czech Republic) and by the time of our meeting, I should be a fresh Master of Science. Besides the organic laboratory, where I am working on the total synthesis of the natural products, I am also doing rock climbing and I love hiking and travelling.
I hope you will enjoy your visit of “Czechoslovakia”, make many new friends and have a good time. Good luck and see you in July!
