Akili Martin: PharmD2Be

My academic journey began in 2011 when I enrolled at Delaware Technical and Community College in hopes to earn a few credits and transfer to pharmacy school. I worked full time and had a baby while at DTCC. I graduated with an A.A.S. in Biological Sciences with honors in 2016 after a brief hiatus to enjoy motherhood.  After studying for the Pharmacy College Admissions Test but not scoring as high as I’d hoped, I felt defeated but still leaned on faith and applied to Temple University School of Pharmacy. I am now a Doctor of Pharmacy Candidate at TUSP for the class of 2020. With my PharmD degree, I am looking forward to reaching out to girls like me to let them know it is not how long the race but getting to finish line that counts.  Being a full time wife, mother, worker and student puts a lot of pressure on me to be great in all aspects of life. Nevertheless, with God, my family and faith all things are possible!
