I because Dalhousie University did not offer

I am an immigrant and came to Canada for
higher studies. Although, I’m originally from Egypt, I grew up in Kuwait and
completed my high school there. I made a commitment to myself to start a career
as a pharmacist when my friend’s sister passed away from a wrong drug
prescription by a pharmacist. Although the pharmacist faced the charges they
deserved, it was still not enough to compensate the kind of loss my friend and
her family were costed. Since then, I realized that my passion lies in becoming
a pharmacist.

I moved to Canada in 2013 and started my
path towards a degree in Bachelors of Science at Dalhousie University. I have
chosen general biology as my major because Dalhousie University did not offer a
specific pharmacy program without prior studies required. During my third year,
I got a personal training job, as exercise is one of my hobbies. During my time
as a personal trainer at the gym, I worked with a manager that had no integrity
and professionalism. She hired trainers that suggested supplements and pills to
clients without learning their chemical and biological structure, or putting
any medications in mind. I could not bring myself to understand how someone can
be so uncaring and it brought memories of my friend’s sister. I care about
people more than I care about money, and I loved personal training because I
got to change people’s lives by helping and comforting them. I had to quit, and
made another promise to myself that I had to learn more so I can make a
difference, because if I knew more I could have stood up for the clients at the
gym and gave them good advice. It is unfair for the clients. It might sound
silly, but if I could go home knowing that I took a small step towards fighting
any of the unfairness in this world, I will sleep in peace.

Currently, I am working as an interpreter at the immigration
services (ISANS) in the health department because I wanted to be a part of such
life changing services to immigrants, like myself. A big part of my training
was to learn how to not involve emotions in situations. However, the most
valuable thing I learned was critical thinking. I was taught to think outside
the box, never assume why someone is asking for a certain drug, and regardless
of the kind of drug purchased, all side effects must be stated so that the patient
knows exactly what to expect. The patient best interest should always be put
first, without taking away their right of choice. I believe my experience at
ISANS had given me insight on how to practice being a good pharmacist. I am
aware it is not even close to what I still need to learn, and that is why I am
applying to you program.

No one can predict the future and I have learned that
from my experiences. However, I am certain that Pharmacy is the right career
for me. The passion to be a pharmacist was born inside me during my teenage
years in Kuwait when I witnessed what happened to my friend and it grew with me
as I matured into an adult. I believe that your pharmacy program will prepare
me to formally and effectively help others. The world is constantly changing
and I personally believe it is changing for the better. I want to be a part of
this betterment, help others and give back to the world. I, wholeheartedly,
believe that the pharmacy program you offer will help me contribute to humanity
and make the world a better place. It would be of great honor to be considered
for your program.
