MAI has taught me that I like working with others and how important teamwork is.

Saleha Mian, MAI Member

What made you join MAI and how long have you been in MAI?

I’ve been MAI for two years now! I joined because I thought it was a unique way to see the medical field and help the community/world :)

What has been your favorite part of MAI? 

My favorite part of MAI is meeting new people and getting to go on a medical trip through MAI!

What has been the most rewarding part so far?

The most rewarding part has definitely been seeing the work we did in the warehouse in Cambodia on my medical trip.

What has been the most surprising lesson you’ve learned while at UCLA?

I’ve learned how important it is to network and work with others!

What’s been you favorite class or instructor at UCLA? 

My favorite class so far has been the DESMA classes for my GEs, nice break from the STEM classes for sure. 

Has MAI helped you with your future plans? If so, how?

It's taught me how to be organized & introduced me to other people who have the same interests that've helped me with classes & given advice.

What is your ultimate career goal or plans? 

My career goal is to be able to help others in the future whether it be a physician or any other health care professional, I hope whatever I do is to help someone and be there for them.

If MAI was a TV show, which show would it be and why?

Maybe superstore? Because all the characters are super unique/quirky like our members, haha, and they restock and take inventory too!

Do you believe in putting pineapple on your pizza? Is a hotdog a sandwich?

No, haha.

And hmmm, probably not, but maybe

BPlate or Covel? What's the best Study Sandwich order?

BPlate because Covel upsets my stomach. Perfect Study sandwich is beef with sourdough toasted (essential!), lettuce, onions, bell peppers, and pesto+mayo (important!).

Cats or dogs? Sunrise or sunset? Dream job?



And a famous food blogger

Favorite TV Show? And a Netflix recommendation if you have one.

My favorite TV show is Scrubs!

Top Netflix recommendation has to be Parks and Rec.
