Myriam Shaw Ojeda is a final-year student pharmacist from Cedarville University School of Pharmacy in Cedarville, Ohio. She also obtained her Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Science from Cedarville University. She grew up in New Delhi, India and considers Ohio her second home.

 As a student pharmacist, Myriam has exercised her passion for leadership and mentorship by serving in numerous roles within the American Pharmacists Association-Academy of Student Pharmacists (APhA-ASP). She served as the President of her APhA-ASP chapter and Regional Member-at-Large for Region 4 where she was known for her innovative ideas and personal emphasis on investing in the people she led. She completed an Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience with APhA last year where she contributed to MRM sessions across the country. She sought to develop her writing skills by authoring two articles for APhA’s Student Pharmacist Magazine. She was honored for her leadership roles last year with APhA’s Student Leadership Award. Myriam was also recognized as a leader by being inducted into Phi Lambda Sigma. She continues to mentor student pharmacists both formally and informally at her school.

Myriam seeks to become a dynamic and visionary leader in the pharmacy world. Therefore, she hopes to pursue a combined PGY1/PGY2 residency in Health System Pharmacy Administration and Leadership. In her free time, she likes to sing the latest soul hits, attend and discuss movies with her friends, and is an avid reader. Myriam believes that leaders do not lead in isolation, but are supported by a team of people who share the leader’s goals. She would therefore like to recognize and thank her family, mentors, preceptors, and friends for their support and advice throughout her journey as a student pharmacist.
