If a classmate ever tried to argue that majoring in Pharmacy is too difficult, I would be their nemesis. As a college student I witness many students pursuing certain professions because they know their college years will be a breeze. I have never been one of those students. Over the past couple of years I have matured and have become a well-rounded person because of my involvement in school. Being a pre-pharmacy student has taught me how to strive for excellence in my classes and in other day- to-day activities. Spending hours studying chemistry is just one of the experiences that has influenced my decision in wanting to pursue a career as a pharmacist.

For the majority of my childhood I was a very introverted person. My father is in the military brat so I switched schools more than the average child. I remember moving to Atlanta Georgia and beginning my first day of 2nd grade at a new school, that had to have been the worst day of my life. When the time came for my first day of school to start, I cried uncontrollably for the first hour and a half. My mother and I are very close and when the time came for her to leave I was crushed. But eventually the tears began to stop and I realized that I had to positively embrace my new environment.

The one thing that helped me adjust to my new environment was my passion to learn. I absolutely loved school! Class was a way for me to break out of my shyness and express myself. By answering all the teacher’s questions and participating in class activities I began to enjoy my new school. As the years passed I began to notice that I always excelled in Math and Science courses. My academic performance in History and English was great, but the Math and Science curriculum always kept me...

All things considered, I have enjoyed the hard work it has taken thus far to pursue my goals of becoming a pharmacist. By choosing to further my education I believe being a pharmacy student will be one of the essential tools needed for me to achieve my career goals. The rigorous pharmacy curriculum will educate me and teach me new information about how to become an efficient pharmacist. Hopefully because of what I have learned throughout the years, patients will trust and believe that I can provide them with valid information that will better their health. With a positive attitude, hardwork, and a great education I know my vision of being a successful pharmacist can one day become reality.
