Meet Dariona Middleton ('15)
Millington, Tennessee

Notable or unique fact about you: I am a first generation college graduate in my family and will be the first in my family to receive a doctoral degree.

Favorite quote: “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou

Who is the one person who has been most influential in your life and why? My dad has been the most influential in my life. He has rooted me in the word of God and has shown me that with hard work, determination, and faith, anything is possible. He is the reason why I decided to pursue pharmacy as a career.

If you could go back and give your P1-self advice what would it be? Study hard but still find time to have fun along the way by getting involved in extracurricular activities.

What advice do you have for prospective students? If pharmacy is your passion don’t take no for an answer. Prove yourself worthy of the opportunity by staying focused, working hard and remember why you want to become a pharmacist. If you can, try to get experience in a pharmacy to ensure that it is something you truly want to pursue.
