I would love to get all the GEM students more involved in the fantastic and diverse events WAPSA are running this year.

I also religiously check my emails, so that works too smile emoticon firstname.lastname@example.org

In my life after university I hope to work as a hospital pharmacist with a speciality in oncology. I joined WAPSA for the opportunity to meet and mingle with some of the best and brightest almostpharmacists who I'm sure will become lifelong colleagues and friends. If you see me around, I'll more than likely be holding a camera so please say "Cheese!"
