    I undertook a week experience in my local community pharmacy while in lower sixth form. I now work part time as a pharmacy assistant and have applied to study Pharmacy and university. Hopefully in 6 years I’ll have just qualified as a pharmacist. I’m so glad I took the opportunity before me and I encourage anyone in a similar position to take a leap and do the same!
