A ailing grandmother and became enthused about the power

A life with a
goal is a life that is whole.” Fortunately, my thirst for
knowledge did not come to an end when I completed high school. One
evening, I sat down and asked myself,
“Should I apply to college or apply for a
job?” Due to financial constraint, I struggled with my thoughts that night
whether to apply to college or secure a job to cater for myself. I did a couple
of paid tutoring in math preparing students for an upcoming semester exam as at
that time.

I became fascinated
about engineering since my father was an engineer, so I enrolled in an
engineering program in 2013. Later in the program, I realized that, being an
engineer wasn’t for me though I was passing my classes. However, I had to defer
the program, because I wasn’t passionate about it. That same year, my
grandmother became extremely sick, I became her caretaker and through her

I started to look into
how to work in the pharmacy. I began by enrolling in a pharmacy technician
program and upon completion, gained profound knowledge about drug discoveries
and how to become a pharmacy technician. Later, I applied to volunteer at a
pharmacy nearby as a pharmacy technician to get a hands-on the job and, “My
heart was full of joy.” I really enjoyed every moment and interactions
with the pharmacists and coworkers.  Upon successfully completing the
volunteering exercise, I enrolled in a Chemical Technology Degree Program at
NYC College of Technology in Fall 2014 since I was passionate about the
sciences and math. However, getting into the Spring 2015 and Fall 2015,
Things became tough for me when I secured a part-time
job along with my classes. There were some few breaches in
my academic life, but that never stopped me from advancing into the
future. I never gave up, but rather challenged myself to overcome all
those barriers. Around the Spring 2016 and Fall 2016, I got back on track
and found myself excelling in my classes.
