Ariana Miranda, P2

Admissions Student Ambassador

Hello everyone! My name is Ariana Miranda and I come from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. I will be honest, it took me a little while to adapt to the speed of the city, but now I am enjoying every second of being here! The location of Touro is incredible. Harlem is rich in cultures, food, music, and more, however there is still many health disparities among the community, which I believe is what makes our school’s location so special. We have constantly the opportunity to reach out to the community and help hands-on to eliminate these disparities. I am currently president of Pharmacists of the State of New York (PSSNY) and historian of College of Psychiatric and Neurologist Pharmacists (CPNP). No, this doesn’t mean that classes are easy, it means that we have to work harder on our time-management skills. My commute is smooth since I live about 25 minutes from school, so usually during exams you will see me either very early in the morning or late- night in a study room to avoid any distractions. Otherwise, I study at home most of the time as I like to be around to walk my 1.5-year-old pup. That is a little bit about myself, but if you have any questions at all about our school, our community, student life, transportation, food, anything, please do not hesitate in contacting me!
