    I study Chemical Physics at ESPCI in Paris. As championed by its former director, Nobel laureate Pierre-Gilles de Gennes, this Grande École distinctively educates its students about science at the crossroads of physics and chemistry, on both theoretical and practical levels. I feel perfectly in line with its education paradigm: What is expected from you ? 1. a genuine, hands-on practice at the bench; 2. self-built judgement: know how to learn from books, take notes, build charts on cross-disciplinary topics; 3. a mixed culture: a physicist who is able to carry out basic chemical synthesis; a chemist who understands what to expect from his/her new molecules; 4. and above all, be bold!
