I am currently a third-year pharmacy student at Ulster University. I chose to study pharmacy in Northern Ireland because of the reputation and quality of teaching of Ulster University, the small class sizes and the beautiful and historic surroundings NI has to offer. Moreover, the pharmacy community in Northern Ireland is small and supportive, which I have experienced first-hand at all my university placements across community, hospital and industry settings.
I began working as a pharmacy assistant in 2011 while undertaking my previous degree and have been working in this role for nine years now. Additionally, I work as a pharmaceutical copywriter, which has exposed me to other avenues in the profession.
I enjoy other aspects of pharmacy such as teaching and peer engagement as well. My interests in teaching has led me to becoming a NICE Student Champion. Through this, I hope to promote evidenced base practice to my peers. Alongside this, I am also a course representative for my year and a PDA student representative. I feel as though learning and sharing more about the profession and the array of vital roles that we can engage in as future pharmacists, is invaluable.
