Personal Statement for Pharmacy School

I need to submit a Personal Statement essay for Pharmacy Schools that I am applying to, but I’m struggling with it. The essay cannot be more than 4500 characters – which I believe it equates to 1 page (single spaced).
Below I have written a few things just to give you an insight of what I was thinking with regards to the essay (you don’t need to stick to what I wrote). If you don’t mind helping write this essay, I would really appreciate. A good attention grabber at the beginning would go a long way for me. Thank you.
Please feel free to ask me anything if you need more information.

I remember one day when I was young, my dad was scolding my younger brother for doing poorly in a science class. According to his logic, my brother had no reason not to do well in science because he and my mom both come from a science background. See growing in an African household (Nigerian) household there is this notion or pressure for kids to become Doctors, dentists, pharmacists, lawyer, engineer, etc (essentially a prestigious career). Therefore my brother coming home with a poor grade in science was considered unacceptable.
For me I don’t know if my interest in science was genetic or maybe it was because I was exposed to that environment at a young age (as my dad insinuated). However I do know that I didn’t need a push to enjoy science. I have always been fascinated with how complex human body is and how well each part (system) works in tandem.
So earlier on, I knew at that young age that I eventually would want to work in healthcare – just like my parents.
What draws me to Pharmacy is that I will be able to help people by providing medical assistance. Providing help to someone gives me a sense of pride. In my first job working a customer service representative, I interacted with lots of people on a daily basis. I remember the moments when my supervisor would tell me at the end of my shift that a customer wanted to express their gratitude because I was very patient and very attentive while I was helping them. To me, this always made my day, because even though I played a small role, I knew that I made a huge impact on someone – I know that I gave them a sense of comfort or joy. I feel like Pharmacy – example community pharmacy will give me this opportunity to help people.
Another reason – is the science aspect. I remember growing up in Nigeria, and we were playing soccer and you scraped your skin off your leg we would use Chromolaena odorata or as we called it in Nigerian -Awolowo leaf – as a remedy to treat our wounds. Even at that young age, I was intrigued with how well it actually worked and how it worked. I find it fascinating how the body interacts with a drug.
I also, remember during harvesting season in Nigerian, while harvesting cassava root, we were always told not to eat too much of the raw cassava because it was harmful. At the time I never fully understood the reasoning behind it. It wasn’t until recently in my Organic Chemistry class where I was able to understand the science behind that warning. Cassava contains a sugar molecule called cyanogenic glycosides. This molecule is converted to cyanide when eaten. Cooking the cassava root reduces the cyanogenic content to acceptable levels. So in essence eating too much of the raw (uncooked) cassava could be very dangerous. I feel like my experiences such as these and my interest in science gives me a firm foundation for medical science.
Another reason – I feel like in the field of pharmacy I will be able to utilize a lot of my skill set that I have developed or enhanced while working as a Medical Technologist in a clinical laboratory. I feel like there are parallels between the two fields. For example, being able to work in a team environment, communicating with other health professionals (e.g I would communicate with Drs, nurses, pharmacist on patients test results, or issues with specimens etc), analytical/critical thinking (e.g analyzing an issue – the cause of an invalid/suspicious test result – determining why the potassium level on a patient sample is extremely high and calcium level is extremely low on a patient sample).
Aside from the world of science, I enjoy listening to music ranging from hip hop/R&b (especially from the 90s era), to soul music, to Afrobeats (African music). I also enjoy travelling and exploring areas that showcase a different perspective of living. I enjoy going to painting classes. I enjoy sports – basketball, football, soccer etc.
