Rachel Huynh '21 is on her way to becoming a pharmacist
Rachel Huynh has known what she wanted to do with her life since high school–become a pharmacist. She says, “I have been working at a pharmacy since I was 16 and was inspired to work in this field. My pharmacists have been such great role models for me and made me realize which area I wanted to study.”
After four years of hard work at UHart, Rachel is graduating from the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions (ENHP) with a degree in Health Sciences. This degree prepared her for the next step in her professional and educational career. She secured a place in Temple University School of Pharmacy to earn her Doctor of Pharmacy degree starting in the fall of 2021.
Huynh says, “The past four years at this school have been great. I have met a lot of people in different organizations that brought me out of my shell and I am grateful to have made the friends I will have for the rest of my life.” One of the organizations that assisted Rachel along her educational path was the Center for Student Success. There she was able to learn about the resources available to students on campus, including connections with advisors that helped her strategize about getting into pharmacy school.
"My advisor and professors were always present in my life if I ever needed help," says Rachel. "UHart's faculty genuinely want you to succeed and get to know each one of their students. Their support pushed me to continue pre-pharmacy and to never give up on it."
What advice does she have to incoming students? Rachel recommends that they “do everything that this school has to offer and take every opportunity that is given to you.” This includes involvement in and out of the classroom. Huynh also added that Spring Fling was one of her favorite events on campus!
