I would like to be a pharmacist and interpreter as a living. I’m not sure if it would change the world but as a start it will help people. As a pharmacist I would help people in give them their prescriptions, answer their question about the medication or their health. I would explain them about their prescriptions, so they can take them safely and effectively. As an interpreter, I would translate in Spanish for Spanish speaking people. There are many Spanish speaking people, who don’t understand or speak English and need help when they go to appointments like in hospitals, clinics, and many place.
To make this dream and goal a reality, I want to go to and continue going to college. In college I will study Pre-pharmacy and graduate, then to go to Pharmacy school to receive my PharmD to become a Pharmacist. As for become interpreter, I’m bilingual. My parents are from Mexico, my mother doesn’t speak or understand much English and saw her struggle. At a young age I had to translate for her when there wasn’t an interpreter to help her. Translating helped me see how I can help people in my ways and talents. To become a better translator I must expand my vocabulary in Spanish. These are my dreams and goals that I want to make them a reality.
