Having a patient who does not speak the language, calming them down, and finding a translator, for instance, or understanding how diverse cultures view certain health practices and looking for ways to respectfully adapt to them has allowed me to learn and practice cultural sensitivity, which is crucial in a multicultural society, such as in Florida, and North Carolina where the population is becoming more diverse. By seeing pharmacists in action in hospital settings, I gained insight into the everyday lives of healthcare professionals who work with patients from every background imaginable. Moreover, I also came to realize the pressure to which pharmacists are exposed when the correct medication must be provided with extreme urgency. Working under pressure is something I have done well since starting my own business, so instead of deterring me, this motivates me. If anyone were to ask me today about the kind of pharmacist I want to be, I would have a much stronger answer than the one I gave to my mother many years ago. I want to be the kind of pharmacist that uses their knowledge, skills, and compassion to improve their patients’ health. Besides all this, and on a much more personal level, I want to be the kind of pharmacist that will make my mother proud.
