What made you realize that you wanted to go into your chosen profession?

As a child I remember being fascinated by healthcare, doctors and medicine. This interest and fascination continued into my teenage years and I decided to look in to what options were available in the healthcare field. While researching, my parents suggested pharmacy so I spoke with our local pharmacist and I was able to find out what pharmacy entails and how pharmacists impact the lives of patients. While she was explaining her role as a pharmacist, I felt as though it would be the ideal profession for me and I made the decision to pursue pharmacy.

In what ways have you given back to P站视频? How have you made a difference in your community?

I have continued to be involved with P站视频 by providing advice and mentorship to new and incoming students and pre-pharmacy students who want to learn more about P站视频 and the profession of pharmacy! I try my best to spread awareness about pharmacy through social media to  educate regarding all that pharmacists are capable of! I am also active in my fraternity, Kappa Psi, and attend events whenever I can and I helped with initiating the class of 2025 into Kappa Psi. I volunteer my time in any way I can to help out within the college of pharmacy.
