Bio

Hi, my name is Jordan Smith and I’m looking forward to being a pharmacist soon. Most of my family members are in the medical field. Which has drawn me to pharmacy, helping people feel their best mentally and physically. Is what motivates me most to be a pharmacist. My grandma and my mom are nurses. Seeing how driven they are about their work, Has taught me so much. I attend connections academy in Houston Texas I graduate in 2022 and my current GPA is 3.5 I am excited about the career path I have chosen and I am ready for the future. I am also interested in different cultures wanting to understand. Everyone and their ways of living I want to learn different languages, travel and try new things. I hope to travel a lot soon and experience the world. Here’s a little about myself, I am from Saint Louis Missouri and my first dream Since I was little was to be a professional dancer. I’ve been dancing since I was 3 years old, but during the time where I was going to high school, which was where I was starting to take more classes and meet more dance teachers. The pandemic happened which kept me from taking classes and perfecting my craft. Another talent that I also have is singing, with these two talents of singing and dancing. This furthermore made me want to be an entertainer as well. I also love the art of culinary, I mostly love to bake sweet treats. The feeling of how happy your food makes others is amazing, I plan on doing more than pharmacy in my future. I am thrilled about everything there is to come.

    DejSlays SlayBabe Scholarship
    Hello, my name is Jordan Smith. I am from Saint Louis, Missouri and my first dream since I was little was to be a professional dancer. I’ve been dancing since I was 3 years old. I also have many other passions and talents, like singing and baking. My biggest dream I have is to become a pharmacist. Pharmacy is the clinical health science that links medical science with chemistry. Science is a favorite subject of mine. It has always caught my eye. Being hands-on with certain science projects and learning new information is just the best feeling in the world. The practice of pharmacy requires you to learn about the side effects and interactions between the body and medications. The human body is a beautiful thing and getting to learn how to treat it and help others and educate them on how to properly treat their bodies is one of the more exciting things about pharmacy. With everything going on in this world, I feel the we need more people who are driven regarding careers in medicine. I will help make a large impact on everyone globally. Having that genuine drive to see a healthier world is what motivates me. To educate and reach communities that do not have anyone to teach them about how to treat and maintain their bodies is especially important to me. My hope is to educate people and hopefully they will turn and pass on the information which will end up helping more and more people each day. Incorporating my love of travel, I would like to help others, not only in my country but in others as well. Being only a freshman in college, I know there is so much more to learn and to experience, as each country offers a different level of need and resources for its people. I hope to one day become a mentor for others who are interested in my field of study as I learn more and more each day.. This knowledge will not only help patients but will help individuals, families, and communities who are not familiar with using medications safely. I am only beginning my journey to learning how to treat and maintain my body. Learning about new medications and the effects they have on my body and a different effects it may have on someone else's body, it is very interesting and great information. This journey makes me grateful for the teachers who take time to educate us so that we as well can pass the knowledge on to others . I am excited about my journey in medicine and the positive impact I plan to make globally and for generations to come.
    Bold Bravery Scholarship
    At the age of 10, I found something that truly made me happy. Something that was also a gift, which was dancing. Everyone told me I was very gifted, and every time I got on stage, everyone would smile and cheer my name in the crowd, but they never saw me near the front of the stage or in the middle. They would always have to look further in the rear for me. You may be wondering why I was so far in the back. You would always find me in a corner or near the back because I was always fearful. I was always afraid of what people thought of me or if I would mess up. I missed a few opportunities due to that fear. I took the time to work on myself, to be outgoing and bold, and to find me. Every day I wake up with a positive mindset and speak amazing things about myself because I know I can do great things and the world needs to see those great things. I have now gotten many opportunities ever since I found myself and practiced being positive and bold. I’m here to say, do not let fear stop you from being the amazing person you are meant to be. Don’t let fear stop you from showcasing your amazing skills and talents because there are many out there who see that and use that as motivation to be just as brave and bold as you.

    Bold Reflection Scholarship
    Hi, my name is Jordan and I am a senior in high school. I have chosen to be homeschooled for my safety, due to the pandemic. I have also taken this opportunity to learn more about myself and my capabilities. This choice has been so helpful in many ways. I could find a career path that I truly loved and other careers I would like to pursue. Without the peer pressures that come with traditional schools. A lot of my family members are in the medical field. Which made me think it was something that I would never even consider. However, I was wrong: I would like to be a pharmacist. This choice wasn't influenced by my family; it was my choice. I value helping others and there are many other ways to do so. Mine will be through pharmacy. I dream of a bright future full of wealth, happiness, and love. Along with pharmacy, I know this will help make my other dreams come true. I am currently exploring more careers and plan to not stop at just pharmacy. I am special and I know I can do anything. More is to come, and this is just the start of my bright future and my journey to bring positive change to the world.
    Bold Relaxation Scholarship
    Being capable of finding the opportunity to unwind and breathe is extremely essential, especially if you are a busy person. Even if you aren't,you should still take time to relax and unwind. I am a Senior in high school, preparing to graduate and transition into adulthood .This can be very stressful,so it is important to make sure that I keep positive and take some time to enjoy myself. I typically start my time with affirmations. I speak positive phrases into my everyday life and also throughout my day. When you begin your time relaxing, speaking positive words will certainly transtion you into tranquility, and your day can become far better than you expected. After affirmations I consume a healthy and balanced breakfast . Following breakfast, I start my school day. I am homeschooled, so whenever the work tends to get a little frustrating I go to take a rest and get some fresh air. Later I partake in an at home work out. When my workout is finished I take my shower.My favorite part of my shower is a nice Tree Hut sugar scrub. A nice sugar scrub keeps my skin very smooth, and it is very unwinding. After my shower, I light a candle, turn on nice calming music. After a day of school, I love to take some me time. Time to listen to calming music and smell my amazing candles. I then read a great book and off to bed to prepare myself for another amazing day. Self-care doesn't always have to be buying the most expensive things or going places. You can simply light a candle, put on some great music and relax. It's that simple. Everyone should prioritize self care, it is needed and can improve your quality of life !
    Bold Great Minds Scholarship
    Hi, my name is Jordan Smith and I have a growth mindset. A growth mindset requires you to have positive thinking when it comes to challenges or setbacks. This focuses on self-perception and the belief that this will affect the outcome. People with growth mindsets believe that their talents and skills can improve over time. This mindset helps many individuals take on more challenges and to keep getting back up and trying again. It is always important for people to believe that they can grow and develop their skills and intelligence. We are all human, we make mistakes, but we must recognize that practice makes progress and encourages us to try new things. This philosophy can help more people find themselves and find what truly makes them happy. A growth mindset can give more motivation and positivity. You will start to see things differently and be able to take on new challenges. I was always afraid that I couldn’t teach myself how to do anything, but I proved myself wrong. A historical figure I admire is Walt Disney. Walt had a growth mindset; he was an animator, cartoonist, voice actor, film producer, and entrepreneur. He was willing to take risks with his talents. Even in the beginning, Walt wasn't very successful, but he kept going. He was fired from a newspaper editor for “lack of imagination “. These challenges didn't stop him, Walt and his brother funded Walt Disney productions which is now one of the best-known motion picture production companies in the world. There are many stories like this, validating that having a growth mindset is very important. I hope that more people learn from their experience and keep going, same as Walt.
    Bold Bravery Scholarship
    Hi, my name is Jordan, and my future career goal is to become a pharmacist. Pharmacy is not my only dream; I am currently taking courses to learn coding as well. My love of sciences keeps me motivated to learn new things. My drive to learn causes me to strive for things I never thought I would be capable of. I now have a growth mindset, meaning, you never give up you try new things you’ve never thought possible for yourself. I have become more open minded, enabling me to take in more and new information. I no longer limit myself and I believe that my abilities can be further developed through hard work and dedication. A Doctor of Pharmacy is something that I thought I could never accomplish due to the amount of discipline it takes to complete the course work, but I refuse to quit or limit myself any longer. I realized I had to make a change within! My thoughts and focus had to change, so in choosing to become a Doctor of Pharmacy I decided to challenge myself to become someone who would make a major impact in my communities. My love for caring for others and educating them on how to care for themselves are additional perks to this career path. While there are many ways to impact my local and surrounding communities, I choose to do that through medicine. I am excited to be a part of the improvement of others health and looking forward to bringing better quality of life.

    Bold Joy Scholarship
    The meaning of joy is a feeling of immense pleasure and happiness. Joy is a feeling like no other, I find joy in giving to others. Helping others is what makes me happy, giving them advice from my experience so they will not make the same mistakes as I did; that is what brings me joy. Spending time with family is one of my favorite things in the world. I am so thankful and filled with joy to have amazing family members to help me, teach me, and guide me through my journey. During this time, it is hard to find joy, but when you find your peace and the things that make you smile, then you will find your joy. I also find joy in baking sweet treats like cookies and cakes; everyone has their way of finding their joy. I would like to let people know that you can find your joy in anything and that whatever situation comes you will find your joy in that. Find what makes you laugh and smile; there was a point in time where I thought I would never be able to find my joy. Having someone like your mom or a friend to talk to or just be around, as well as spending time with just yourself. Figuring out who you are and what you like can help you find your joy; sometimes you just need a little time to yourself. Find your peace, speak positively when you speak positively, and do positive things,and your life will change. You will feel happier and that is where you will find your joy as well. I hope during this time many people find their joy and find themselves as I did. Everyone should take this time to find their joy & themsleves .
