Bennie’s Blog (Summer 2019)
In November 2017 I graduated secondary school education (ordinary level education in Tanzania). After there I completed a computer course with the help of the MAD organization for first three month of my long Holliday. The month after this I went to a high school in Arusha called winning spirit, but MAD recognized that this was not a very good school. For that reason Theresa didn’t want me to go on with the school so she gave me the option to choose another school, but I was too late to get a nice high school and so I chose to go to college for pharmacy because I really enjoy pharmacy.
I am currently attending Kilimanjaro School of Pharmacy, although I looked at a lot of pharmacy schools to attend, Kilimanjaro seemed like the best fit. I started my classes in October 2018 and I love it so much. First semester I had seven classes and it was very hard for me since I was just on my holiday and my brain was not working hard all the time. There were lots of assignments that I had to work on at all hours of the day. My favorite class was anatomy and pharmaceutical calculation. I got really good grades my first semester and I was very happy about it.
At school, I like playing and listening to music in my free time. My favorite sports are soccer(football). At the end of this past semester I had a small internship where I went to a fieldwork practical at KCMC. I worked as a pharmacist and I wrote a report to show my school. In school, I made some new friends as well.
