Julian SheldonMasters Student, Pharmaceutical Chemistry
Julian Sheldon is a Masters student in Pharmaceutical Chemistry, who loves learning in order to help those around him. His friends applaud him for the perseverance and determination he has shown in his studies and life, and for the commitment he has shown in the frontlines against Covid-19.
With his eagerness to learn, comes his appreciation for learning from others. “Mentorship is valuable for young and new healthcare professionals because we are novices in this field,” Julian says. “Mentorship provides this form of guidance.”
Julian found his mentor in pharmacist Leon Brits for whom he worked for three years — sharing a close bond and great respect for one another.
Leon, the responsible pharmacist at Essential Health Pharmacy in Kuilsrivier, also values the long-term impact of mentorships and remembers the lessons his own mentor once taught him in the pharmaceutical industry.
