About Me

I am still in high school but I make sure to know how to take the necessary steps in order to achieve my career goal. My career goal is to become a pharmacist. In order to achieve this goal I need to remember to keep my grades in check and myself to. I also need to keep a love for the sciences and math. Pharmacy has been around for years and will continue to stay a job. Pharmacy is used everywhere even you think it's not being used, it may not necessarily be to the person in a white lab coat behind the counter but even the simple cough medicine was developed my pharmacists. Pharmacists are always working either in labs developing new medicine or in your local Walgreens or CVS.
