6 Days to Go: Hello everyone! My name is Amanda Fenstermacher, and I am currently in my last year of pharmacy school at Wilkes University. I have been a pharmacy intern at a CVS, a widely known community pharmacy, in my hometown for 6 years now. Throughout my college career I became more and more involved with organizations like the American Pharmacists Association and the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association, and I became highly involved with tutoring the local children of all ages at the YMCA, which is an organization with a cause to strengthen the community. My professional goals are to continuously strive to improve the quality of care for patients, and I remain open-minded to different career opportunities. As far as hobbies go, I enjoy scuba diving, playing the piano/singing, running, skiing, and doing any kind of outdoor activities. I grew up with an older sister who is a physician’s assistant working in oncology/hematology, and I also have a stepsister who works in human resources.
With regard to my personal life, I recently got engaged to a friend I have known and traveled with since I was 11!
Ever since I was young, I have done a lot of international traveling, mostly to the Caribbean for scuba diving, and I have also traveled to a couple places in Europe (France and Finland). Africa is what attracted me to this experience (because I have always wanted to go to Africa), and I thought this would be an absolutely unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience! I look forward to seeing what pharmacy practice is like in Uganda/Africa, and most of all, the impact that this experience will have on me!
we shall gladly and warmly welcome you to africa, and you will not regret your decision, and we are waiting for your arrival , i wish i could even be part of those are going to recieve you from entebbe airport, ! Anyway you are welcome in advance our dear friend.
