At a young age, I always knew I wanted to be in the healthcare field. I chose to become a pharmacist because I wanted to play a crucial role in one’s health. I can see how far the role of a pharmacist has expanded. The possibilities are endless. I believe my calling is to become a clinical pharmacist. I enjoy using my clinical knowledge to make interventions and being part of patient assistance programs.
It took me a few days to process that I matched because I was also getting married at the same time! Within one weekend, I was married and matched! The entire weekend flew by, and I am consumed with so much happiness.
The best advice I can give is to take every opportunity as a learning experience and always pay it forward. Also, remember you are human, and everyone else is too! There will be days that are harder than others. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Last, trust the process!
