Hello everyone! I wrote you a letter to give you some insight of my life and where I am going in the future. I graduate on Tuesday, so farewell I wish you all the best. YOU WILL ALL GET THERE!
I’m celebrating of my graduation from Metropolitan State University with a Bachelor of Science: Double major in Business Administration and Professional Communication with emphasis in Organizational Communication. My official graduation date is December 16th 2014. Though I would like to thank each and every one of you for the support and encouragement that you have given me over the years, not just regarding school but life as well. Every person who is being invited to my graduation party has influenced me in a positive way and I would like to thank you for that, I wouldn’t have made it here without all of you.
Once I graduate, I will be continuing my education at Anoka-Ramsey Community College completing pre-requisites to help me on the path to becoming a Pharmacist. I have 2-3 semester of classes to take before I will be completed with all of the classes in the Pre-Pharmacy program. This summer, I then hope to take the Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT), when this is completed I can begin applying to pharmacy schools. I hope to go the NDSU or the U of MN, but we will see what happens. There are many constraints that will dictate where I end up. Once I am accepted to a Pharmacy School I will be on the home stretch, I can become an intern and begin my rotations. This entire process of becoming a Pharmacist is going to take around 5 years, although once it is completed I be a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD).
Currently, I am going on my third year working for CVS, I actually just received a promotion that will go into effect the week of Thanksgiving in November. I will be transferring from being an Inventory Specialist at the Grand Ave. CVS in St. Paul, to a store a few miles away. I was asked to be the Lead Technician of the highest volume CVS in Minnesota, it is located in St. Paul at the corner of Snelling Ave. and University Ave… I am really excited for a new challenge, especially one that will allow me to apply and practice the knowledge that I have learned in school. I have noticed that my commination skills have become much more important than my knowledge of businesses operations, working in this field. This new experience, will also help me get into pharmacy school and get a better job in the future. The staff at my new store is very happy that I accepted this management position and they are very willing to accommodate my continuing education needs. I hope to work alongside the pharmacist there to make changes in the ways that we provide customer assistance and show how far a little communication can really go. This should be an easy task for me since talking is right up my alley.
I am very happy that I am able to share this life accomplishment with you, never forget that you helped me get here. I look forward to chatting with all of you soon. Hope that you are doing well, I look forward to hearing about what is new in your life!
