Life is a continuous learning process everyday.
Personally, being able to obtain a higher education gives me an opportunity to be better in many ways. I always have a strong desire to help people. From the experience that I have gained throughout my high school years, I have come to realize that I want to become a pharmacist.
I have taken many courses to prepare for my future, such as advanced placement chemistry and Calculus BC. Wanting to attend the University of Minnesota- Twin Cities in the future will keeps me motivated to do well in school and maintain my 4.0 GPA or higher. But education is not just about grades. I am proud to be involved in National Honor Society. As a member I show excellence in scholarship, leadership, service, and character. I complete about 40 hours or more of volunteering during a whole year.
In helping others I have become a better person. Volunteering has influenced me to become a member of the healthcare team. My educational aspirations consist of acquiring a bachelor’s degree in any biological or chemistry that would help me in pursuing a medical career as a pharmacist. I want to get the very best education possible by attending a great university. I believe University of Minnesota- Twin Cities is the best choice for me, because the pharmacy program is nationally ranked clearly indicating that it is a program that will prepare me well. I have always wanted to pursue in pharmacy because I know that pharmacists play an important role in people’s lives.
The decision to become a pharmacist was primarily influenced by my own personal curiosity. I have considered other career before like becoming an elementary teacher, however upon reflection; I realized that my passion for chemistry has been with me since childhood. I have analyzed all the health care careers, including nursing and decided that pharmacy was the best because I had a passion for chemistry. I plan to pay my education through scholarships or grants, and get little assistance from my parents as little as possible. I believe I will be well prepared for college and especially this field of study. Being able to discover and achieve my educational goals, that I enjoy and truly find rewarding will be an invaluable experience.
