Some information about me
I′m from West Covina, CA, I′m a Biology major, I′m the first in my family to attend college
I′m entering my 3rd year at UC Riverside,
I′m on track to graduate at the end of this school year (one year early).
I chose this accelerated path for several reasons, but primarily so that I could pursue my dream to attend Pharmacy school as soon as possible.
I′ve wanted to become a Pharmacist for as long as I remember, both because it is a steady job, which is important to me given my family situation, and provides me with an opportunity to perform a valuable service for my community. I′m currently working on becoming a certified pharmacy technician.
I′ve volunteered at a hospital shadowing a CNA over the last year, and have also served in multiple leadership positions in my sorority (Pi Beta Phi) over the past 2 years.
