Describe how your personal, educational, and professional background will help me achieve my goal.
This essay is EXTREMELY important for my acceptance. Therefore, PLEASE I need it to be well written.
I need an empathetic story within the personal statement that describes how my dream of being a pharmacist started.
Some information that might be helpful:
I’m a student at Rutgers University as a biology major and a psychology minor. When I was junior in high school I went on a medical missionary trip to Haiti (one of the poorest countries). This trip initiated my passion for becoming a pharmacist. In these villages was a lack of medical resources, proper medication, and doctors. As a result, I observed many families losing their loved ones (especially children at a young age). I saw many cases of fevers and kids that are severely malnourished. From there, I thought of pharmacy as being the antidote to lessen or end suffering. As a group, we helped by providing medications and vaccines of with the proper dosage we were able to draw a smile on the citizen’s faces. This trip was an enormous learning opportunity for me where I discovered what I’m passionate about and got to work with different pharmacists from different locations in America. After this trip, I started volunteering in a local pharmacy to gain more experience in the field. I migrated to the United States from Egypt when I was nine years old with my family from a small village. Even in my village, there were very limited pharmacies and doctors (the nearest pharmacy in my village was an hour away). Therefore, when I went to Haiti I was able to relate to their lack of medical resources. I struggled until I was able to succeed and overcome the language barrier. To support my parents financially, I started working at a young age which helped me gain responsibility. Becoming a pharmacist is my dream to help as many patients and draw a smile on their faces.
BY EARNING MY Phd. IN PHARMACY I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO HELP MORE THE PEOPLE LIKE HAITI IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS IN THE USA. (After accomplishing a Ph.D. in Pharmacy; using my knowledge of medicine as a powerful mechanism, I would love to be the person to reduce some of the pain and suffering.)
