My name is Anthony. I am a pharmacist and a second-year law student. I want to say thank you for establishing this wonderful scholarship! I attended my first ASPL conference in 2016 when I was a P3 pharmacy student. A tremendous mentor of mine recommended that I attend if possible. I was determined to make it to the conference in Austin despite the travel and registration expenses. I sought assistance from my Dean, established a GoFundMe, took donations from family, and used a credit card—all to get to ASPL. Luckily, I was surrounded by tremendous people that were willing to support me. Attending that conference solidified my decision to attend law school after pharmacy school. It was one of the greatest decisions I’ve ever made and I cannot wait to start practicing in just over one year. I have connected with so many wonderful professionals at ASPL conferences and am thrilled to know that another student will have the same opportunity, thanks to this scholarship.
