Meet Angela Carolina Leal Alturo.

Chemistry Teacher

Bogotá, Colombia

What inspired you to enter and pursue this field?


I like science to discover the world.


How did you come to be in this position?


Science, especially chemistry, is a field poorly explored in Latin American and is so important like any other science. My first experience was in teaching and then in industry. Together it got me a lot of skill development at the professional and academic levels. For me, it is very inspiring to do science in my country of Colombia and in Latin American.


What advice would you give young women looking to enter your current line of work?


All that you dream is possible.
