Later in theprogram, I realized that, being an engineer wasn’t for me so, I had to deferthe program, because I wasn’t passionate about it. That same year, mygrandmother became extremely sick, I became her caretaker and through herhealing process, I witnessed the great quality of care pharmacists administeredfor my ailing grandmother and became enthused about the power of drugs. As tinyas these drugs are, they were able to make my grandmother stronger again. Istarted to look into how to work in the pharmacy. I applied to volunteer at apharmacy nearby as a pharmacy technician to get a hands-on the job and, “Myheart was full of joy.
