HI I born July 31, 1923) in an American chemist who invented poly-paraphenylene terephthalamide better known as Kevlar wich is bullet prof mitereal. I was born in the Pittsburg suburb of New Kensington, Pennsylvania. I have won numerous awards for my work in polymer chemistry. My father, John Kwolek : Jan Chwałek), died when I was ten years old. He was a naturalist by avocation, and I spent hours with him, as a child, exploring the natural world. I attributes my interest in science to him and an interest in fashion to my mother,that is some infermaion about me.
