LIU Brooklyn Amandeep KaurName: Amandeep Kaur
Major: Pharmacy
Hometown: Queens, NY

Activities at LIU:

Favorite part of LIU:
LIU Brooklyn is a diverse community that is made up of unique individuals. Due to this unique characteristic, I was able to transition into LIU very smoothly and established close friendships with many students. Not only was I able to make amazing friends, I was able to develop a bond with my teachers and counselors. I have received exemplary advice from LIU's staff. These distinctive qualities unify LIU Brooklyn into a close knit of people.

Keys to success (what helped you to succeed in school):
I entered LIU with the mindset that I wanted to succeed in every way possible. I made this happen by doing well in my classes and maintaining a high GPA. Not only did I want academic success, I also wanted to establish myself as a unique individual in the LIU Brooklyn community. With the help of counselors from FYP and SYP, I was able to get the position as an Orientation Leader. From there I took the next step and applied for a job at CVS Pharmacy, where I currently work. A crucial key to my success is perseverance; I didn't stop after getting one satisfying role, whether it was as an OL, Pharmacy Service Associate at CVS, or Pharmacy Volunteer at Lenox Hill Hospital. I continuously pushed myself and have my voice heard by speaking on a Student Success Panel and being an important figure to whoever needs my assistance. This is the time to do well and have that successful career no matter how staggered the path may be.
