Please discuss the following items in the order given. Briefly respond to all areas listed.
1. How was your interest in Pharmacy as a career developed?
Since my early schooling days, science and mathematics have always fascinated me given that all components of the world are explained on the basis of these disciplines. In this regard, Pharmacy which is based on Chemistry and Mathematics has interested me a great deal as it has direct impacts on our daily lives. The more I have become familiar with the chemistry and mathematics knowledge involved in pharmacy, the more I have appreciated its significance in improving the lives of people in the community. Out of the many careers that one would opt to pursue, Pharmacy has stood out as the career that will enable me serve the society more directly and have a real impact in the quality of peoples’ lives by touching their health. In addition, I love a career that is challenging and one that I will be involved in even in old age. In this case, Pharmacy offers me this opportunity. My interest in Pharmacy has also developed from my personal health experiences and becoming aware of its expansiveness. Every time I have had to take medicine to cure an illness, I have become more interested to know how drugs are made and how the drug components work in the human body to alleviate pain and restore health. I desire to pursue a career in Pharmacy so as to gain practical experience in these aspects of research.
2. What distinctive aspects of LLU School of Pharmacy are significant to you?
Many graduates from LLU School are actively involved in the medical field. The environment surrounding LLU University provides pharmacy students with ample opportunities to serve the community as volunteers. For me, I would like very much to volunteer so that I can gain field experience towards becoming a better Pharmacist. The LLU School of Pharmacy instils a sense of pride in those who graduate as it endeavours to pursue excellence and produce well equipped and competent graduates. I know of my wife’s friend who graduated from LLU nursing school and was highly proud of her achievements as she got many job openings to choose from. In LLU University, there is cultural and religious cohesiveness and a curriculum that upholds good relationships among students, and between students and the teaching staff. In other words, the environment to me is ideal for building wonderful human characteristics. The culture of hard work among students is also an important aspect for me since it gives me confidence of getting help easily by working with determined and focused people. The abundance of health sciences programs in the School is also something that makes me feel confident that I am in the right place.
