However, her time in Pharmacy School was one of the most difficult times in her life. She added to it, “During pharmacy school, I lost my grandfather, grandmother and my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer. It was a very difficult year for me. But what kept me going was that I knew higher education would help me.” Thus, this proves that even during such dire times, she did not deflect from her goal in order to help herself and her family. She says that her greatest source of inspiration has always been her family, her parents in particular. They always supported her throughout her education. They never put any pressure on her and wanted her to do it on her own accord. “My dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer while I was in pharmacy school and watching him die taught me how short life is and how to make the best of it. He pushed hard to live for his family but ultimately the disease killed him. He taught me perseverance no matter what challenge you face”, said she. The emotional turmoil taught her a lot of life lessons.
