What first got you interested in your field of choice?
I have always been interested in science and with pharmacy, I felt that I could explore the areas that interest me the most and apply them in real life to help people. I've also heard many people express doubts and suspicions about drugs and pharmaceuticals, so I wanted to explore them myself and clear them up or make changes that affect people in a positive way.
What type of obstacles have you had to overcome on the road to getting your education?
Being an immigrant I had to face cultural shock, language barriers, being new to the system, and other difficulties that most people didn’t have to go through. But I am grateful for all the challenges because they have molded me into the person I am today and I wouldn't have it any other way.
How did you know that KGI was the right school for you?
I knew that KGI was different from every school out thereafter I had my PharmD interview. The warmth, enthusiasm, and professionalism that I experienced were not offered at any other school I interviewed for. And it did not end there. I have felt the same way every day that I have been here. I feel extremely grateful for the opportunity that I have been given and I will make the fullest of it.
Why did you want to become an Admissions Ambassador?
I wanted to create awareness about KGI at community colleges since I come from one. I would love for everyone to know how to get to where they want to be using the resources available here at KGI.
What is one fun and interesting fact about you?
I practiced karate for 10+ years but I'm still only a yellow belt.
