for 2012/2013 and the beginning of being a Pharmacy Intern!I would like to congratulate all my fellow final years on completing theirBachelor in Pharmacy and in the process, in writing the last sentence intheir book of being a student
for those still at varsity, I would like toshare the following words
“Don’t blend, don’t water it down, don’t try to make it logical;
don’t edit
your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow yourmost
intense obsessions mercilessly.”
