Personal life
Assume you went to U show that there was a turning point and I had a realization that made me feel like I should purse my dream as a pharamcist.
I’ve been mainly focused on chemistry classes at community college (that’ll be my major at uw seattle) and have been taking science and math classes such as physics and calculus. I would like to point out one or two professors in chemistry department at uw seattle that I would like to take classes with and talk about how good pharmacy program at uw will help me achieve my dream to become a pharmacist. Also would like to tell them I’ve volunteered with my church feeding homeless people and went abroad to perform traditional dances to touch people’s hearts.
