I come from a third world country where my father was persecuted for his opposition to the ruling party. Since we came to this country, I have done two jobs in order to support my family. This is because my father could not secure a job because it hard for old immigrants to get employed. I have a strong mind and am also persistent. I am motivated to work hard so that I can reach considerable heights in whatever I do. This helped me to overcome a lot of tribulations and trial in my country. In the past five years, I have undertaken two jobs and at the same time attended two colleges. The education environment in USA has helped me a lot because I have the freedom and a variety of courses which I can choose. This is different from my country where I took engineering which was not a course of my choice because there was no freedom in course selection.
I have a strong desire to become a Pharmacist. This is a desire I developed since I was a young girl. My interest was enhanced because my mother passed away when I was thirteen year old. She died because no one close to her had information that taking aspirin for arthritis for ten years would destroy her gastric. Despite the fact that the issues would have been resolved very fast, she passed away when she her forty’s. This enhanced my interest in health issues. I would like to undertake pharmacy in the University of the Pacific so that I can help people have knowledge on the drugs that they take. I would assist the patients by explaining to the benefits drugs recommended by the doctor would help improve their health and their side effects.
I have three years work experience as a technician in Wargreens pharmacy. I have also worked as a volunteer in various activities, in a nearby library. In college, I was a member of Alpha, Gamma and sigma. I apply to study in University of the pacific because of its reputation in producing graduates who perform efficiently in their duties. I have seen many graduates at Walgreen who were remarkably efficient. I look forward for a positive response from the university admission committee.
