About Aishani

Hello Readers! My name is Aishani and I am a rising P1 pharmacy student at University of the Sciences. When my head is not buried in schoolwork, you will find me on campus giving tours as a student ambassador or tutoring underclassmen! I am also involved in campus organizations such as American College of Apothecaries(ACA), SSHP, iLead, and the PCP student council. During my downtime, I love exploring restaurants around Philadelphia and trying new, exotic food. Yes, that’s right, I’m a foodie! When I’m not eating or studying, I love to bake, binge watch Netflix, paint my nails, and take artsy pictures. My adventure so far at the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia has been a rewarding experience and I have been able to make a great variety of memories. I would like to show you what our school and Philadelphia has to offer. So, follow along on my crazy, yet exciting journey and learn how you can create your own memories here at University of the Sciences!


White Coated ft. Sappy Reflections

This past weekend was the annual White Coat Ceremony for nearly 150 P1 students, including myself. Like many of my classmates, I dreamt of this moment ever since I was a senior in high school and decided to pursue Pharmacy. I was sitting and going through all of the photos that were posted on Facebook, when I realized how much everyone has grown and changed since freshmen year.

Some may think, "But, it's just a white coat. Everyone gets it, what's so special about it?" or "Why do they make such a big deal about getting a white coat?". As a U1 student, I thought it would be 'cool' to wear the white coat, like I saw many of the upperclassmen who roamed around the campus. Honestly, I just wanted the white coat to show off and I guess I never realized the importance until after I received it.

The White Coat Ceremony is supposed to mark our transition from our undergraduate years into our professional years. It is a milestone in our endeavor towards our career, but it also there to remind us that we still have a long way to go and much more to learn- we are only just beginning our journey as professionals. The turning point for me was when I took pictures with my family and friends. It was then when it dawned on me that I am so lucky to have such a great support system and I was more than confident that Pharmacy is the route for me, no matter how hard it gets (or how many tears I shed). It is worth every all-nighter and bad-hair day. Without my friends and class-mates, it would not have been possible to get through the past two years with my sanity in-tact. Even with some of the most stressful days, it was possible to get through the past two years whilst making some wonderful memories. The next 4 years without a doubt will be tough, but we should all know that we have our family, friends, classmates (and God) to support us through this journey!

I would like to congratulate everyone who received their white coats thus far, and those who will be receiving them in the near future. It is a great accomplishment and it is even better when you get to share this moment with your loved ones.


Here are some of the moments I got share with my friends from freshman year:
