Healthcare and essential workers are required to wear face masks for long hours each day resulting in their ears becoming sore and many experiencing headaches. P3 Student, Stepfanie Lam , saw this problem and collaborated with UCSD, UCLA , and University of California, Irvine students to create ear savers for our pharmacy students! If you’re a current UCSD SSPPS student, please contact your class president to claim your ear saver as a thank you for your contribution towards the COVID-19 pandemic.

With September just around the corner, we are very excited to introduce our incoming P1 class. As they make their transitions to SSPPS, P2 students Chelsea, Tristan, and Michelle share some quick tips and reflections from their first year in pharmacy school to pass on to the Class of 2024.

Chelsea Blaquera, P2 Student
What’s one piece of advice you would give to an incoming P1 student?

Just breathe and give yourself a break. You’ve already reached your goal of getting into pharmacy school! You are doing great!

Tristan Hankard, P2 Student
What’s one idea you would give to a P1 to destress?

P1 year can be stressful, but remember you aren’t experiencing it alone. Leaning into your cohort can be a great way to destress and make friendships over mutual struggles.

Michelle Chau, P2 student
What is your favorite memory during P1 year?

My favorite memories are late nights at the library. The support I felt with my class was unwavering and they truly have become my family away from home!

P3 Student pharmacist, Afrooz Sabouri shares her empowering story on being both a mother and student pharmacist at UCSD SSPPS!

How do you handle being a mother and a pharmacy student?

When I entered pharmacy school, I had an infant, so the first quarter at Skaggs was the toughest one for me. I am confident that it’s possible to be both a good mom and a great pharmacy student by planning ahead of time, being organized, developing a study regimen that works for you, and asking for help when you need it.

What are some challenges that you face and how do you prioritize your responsibilities as both a student and mother?

Planning ahead of time and being organized will save you a lot of time and keep you calm and out of stress. I have daily, weekly, and monthly plans that help me stay on top of my goals. It’s important to keep track of deadlines, prioritize coursework, and make sure you still have time to spend with your family while having some time for self-care. There are a lot of resources and people at school who know how to help you, please don’t hesitate to ask for help when needed.

Do you have any advice for mothers who are planning to apply to pharmacy school?

Develop a studying regimen that works for you. It is really important to ask people about their study tips and advice, but remember that we all learn in different ways and it’s really really important to come up with a study regimen that works for you. For example, I couldn’t write notes during classes, therefore I had to listen to most of my lectures at home on weekdays to complete my notes and use weekends to review and memorize them.
Finally, there were times that I felt so overwhelmed regardless of all of my efforts. If you feel overwhelmed, take a break, do something that makes you happy like listen to your favorite music, go for a run, watch a movie, and keep reminding yourself that “You are a superstar” and if anyone can do this, it’s YOU.

P3 Student Pharmacist, Sinhye Park, shares her journey and unique experiences that has helped prepare her to thrive at UCSD SSPPS!

“Prior to pharmacy school, I was in marketing for 5 years at a global company where I had the opportunity to travel to numerous countries and work with colleagues with diverse backgrounds. What I have learned from the multicultural environment is the power of diversity and the importance of inclusion. I experienced firsthand that we are all unique and no single person can be a complete representation of a certain group as everyone within a group also has gone through different experiences that have shaped who they are and what they value. By embracing the differences and uniqueness among us, we can foster continuous learning from one another and create attitudes of openness to change. As a student at Skaggs, I have strived to demonstrate my deep understanding of diversity when collaborating with classmates for a project or organizing an event. Additionally, I have sought to be a figure representing of a leader who creates an environment of inclusive behaviors where everyone feels welcomed to show who they are, express what they think, and share how they approach problems.I believe it led me to appreciate my own identity and value everyone at Skaggs for who they are and helped me thrive by learning from them everyday.” - Sinhye Park
