  3. 3. Karishma Patel 1610 South Peterson Avenue Douglas, Georgia 31535 (912) 592-8801 karishma1196@gmail.comFebruary 8, 2011To Whom It May ConcernMy name is Karishma Patel, and I attend George Washington Carver Freshman Campus. I am fourteenyears old and an honor student. I joined Future Business Leaders of America this year and next year, Iplan to join HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) in addition to FBLA. I feel that both of theseorganizations will be beneficial to me as I pursue a career in the medical field.In the medical field, I want to work as a pharmacist. I enjoy helping others and giving my time and adviceto those who need it. Math is a strong subject of mine and this particular subject plays an important rolein pharmacy. I can easily relate to science as I like to discover and learn new things. A pharmacist’s jobincludes being able to help others manage such conditions like blood pressure, diabetes and otherillnesses. They must be able to identify the prescriptions given by doctors and other healthcareprofessionals. As a pharmacist, one must be very organized as well as confident and accurate. Nomistakes must be made and everything in this career must be done particularly. Important documentsand paperwork must be handled responsibly.I am a responsible and dependable person and try to manage everything properly. I am a perfectionistand tend to want everything done accurately and precisely. As mentioned before, I feel that the subjectsof math and science are most interesting. I enjoy solving problems and helping others. As a pharmacist,you must be very clear when communicating and also play the role of an active listener.SincerelyKarishma PatelKarishma Patel
