Why Pharmacy? My great-grandmother in Ghana had an immense knowledge of herbal medicine, and she employed numerous plants in her homemade medical treatments. For example, whenever any of my family members sustained a skin cut, she would make a paste from the leaves of a local plant called “Acheampong” and bandage the wound with it. Another plant I remember vividly, "Sempe,” was used to create a decoction of its plant leaves, and the liquid was drank to relieve constipation. Later, I learned that both of these plants had wound-healing and laxative properties, respectively. Witnessing the use of herbal medicines to treat diseases by my great-grandmother made me resolve to pursue pharmacy, and my interest in the field grew when I participated in drug-safety campaigns while studying pharmacy in Ghana.
