This week, we are excited to invite the 2021 President of the Victorian Pharmacy Student Association (VPSA) to share her journey as a student leader and what she has gained from stepping out of her comfort zone.
Mahek Shah is a passionate 3rd year Monash Pharmacy student. Alongside her leadership role, she sits on the PSA early career Pharmacist working group, a position in which she can contribute to her future Pharmacy career. She values a balance between work life, academia, and leadership commitments.
Being brought up in Kenya, it was difficult to look past the hardships faced by others with access to healthcare. This has shaped her vision to work alongside organisations such as MSF or the WHO as a Pharmacist.
You can find Mahek Shah on LinkedIn.
