In Her Own Words
“I would say that I learned that the industry that I’m in is so much bigger than just me. There is this emphasis on the fact that we’re often making life changing medicines for people. And everything we do, makes a difference in someone else’s life. So there’s this focus on product quality, making sure that everything is documented in the correct way. Sometimes it can get tiring. But then I realize that the products we make go into people’s bodies and actually do things in their bodies. I think that that puts things into perspective.” – Chidera Igbokwe M.P.S. ’22, biotechnology
