I am happy to be back working on my blog. After graduating from secondary school in November 2017, Make A Difference (MAD) provided me with computer classes at ACT (Affordable Computers of Tanzania) for one month. We learned Microsoft Excel, Word, Publisher, and a little bit of graphic design.
Then I started college in November 2018 at Kilimanjaro School of Pharmacy (KSP) in Moshi. In the first semester, I took seven classes – Anatomy, Calculations, Communication Skills, Computer, Disease Control and Prevention, Pharmaceutical Forms, and Dispensing. My favorite class was Calculations because I like math. The first semester was very good and lasted six months. At the end of the semester, we had one month of practicals at the hospital in Moshi. In the practicals, we learned how to dispense medicines to patients, how to fill in ledger books, and how to maintain the store of medicine.
In the second semester, I am taking four classes – Pharmocology, Compounding Theory and Practicum, Medical Store, and Law and Ethics in Pharmacy Practice. In a typical day, I go to lecture classes according to the schedules of the tutors, sometimes 8-10am, 11am-1pm, and 2-4pm.
On the weekend, I study and also go to church on Sunday. I live in a hostel at the college. My roommates are also Make A Difference (MAD) students – Shaban, Innocent, and Benny.
