Tizah Anjeh

Name: Tizah Anjeh
Class Year: Professional year two (P2)
Hometown: Born in Cameroon, Africa as a U.S. citizen of an American mother and African father

Why I wanted to be a pharmacist:

After five years at Pfizer as a senior research chemist, I started thinking about pharmacy school as I dodged layoff after layoff. I knew my background in chemistry (including master’s and doctoral degrees in organic chemistry from The Johns Hopkins University) would be able to see me through a pharmacy program, and I didn’t want to reinvent the wheel. I wanted to go somewhere where I could still use what I know and do something different.

What I do when I’m not at STLCOP:

As a mother of seven children and a full-time pharmacy technician at CVS/pharmacy, I am extremely passionate about my family and learning. What drives me in everything I do is making sure my kids have everything they need. It’s tough most days. And sometimes, I’m only human, and I’m unable to. But I squeeze out every second I can when I have free time.

What I love about STLCOP:

I thought I’d have a few acquaintances. But I have met some of the most amazing people here. They go out of their way to help me, and I’ll cherish their friendships as long as I live.

Where pharmacy will take me:

When I starting working at CVS, I realized that I actually make a difference every day. I mean, as a chemist, you make a difference, but you don’t get to see your difference. In pharmacy, it’s tangible. I can touch it. I can see it. I can feel it, and it’s what I was missing in my life when it came to career satisfaction.
