It is with this mindset that I wish to express my intention to enter the School of Pharmacy at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. The passion in the field of Science can be rooted back when I was young. At an early age, I was really fascinated and amused by the things happening in the environment. I was really curious about the catalysts that bring about life to organisms and living things. I feel that by carefully understanding the interplay of these things, I can satisfy my questions and appreciate the natural beauty brought about by the study of these things.
Such primary motivation has given me the leverage and dream to specialize in a degree that comprehends on such symbiosis. The interest to specialize in pharmacy became evident as I began to study the discipline and how it can integrate the concepts of Biology and Chemistry together. With this, I can truly capture the essence of professional practice and help cater to the needs of individuals who need help. Similarly, it is in this profession that I can perform complex mathematical equations that I also love and cherish as an individual.
With its perfect mixture of different fields, the degree in Pharmacy can help me realize further the dream that I always had as young individual.

The good curriculum and effective professors have all given me different motivation in studying and supplemented my passion to learn and improve. I feel that all these have been beneficial for my pursuit to further my knowledge and supplement my dream to study Pharmacy. Similarly, I had also been part of several projects at the Kuwait Institute of Science and Research wherein the areas that I specialized where in microbiology and chemistry.
With these, I was able to apply the concepts that I had learned during my previous education and adequately reinforce my capabilities as a research associate. Likewise, this has enabled me to find conduct experiments and be taught of new approaches to integrate and analyze information. I feel that by immersing myself in these areas, I can function better both as a researcher and a student of pharmacy in the future.
