"Ohara Augusto"

She entered the Chemistry undergraduate program of the Chemical Institute of the University of São Paulo, IQ/USP, in 1967. She was however, only an average student during the course. Times were troubled, the course structure was very rigid and there were financial difficulties. These factors led her to teach Chemistry at the high school level during the night period (1969/1971) instead of researching in the Institute's laboratories. Once she earned her Bachelor's degree, she still believed her calling was to do scientific research, so she chose graduate school. She knew very little about the work being developed at the Institute, but was lucky to be a personal friend of Prof. Francisco G. Nóbrega, who advised her look for Prof. Giuseppe Cilento.
