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

I’ve been in MAI for almost 4 whole years now and I can genuinely say that I initially joined my freshman year because of how revolutionary I believed (and still believe) our mission statement to be. 

What has been your favorite part of MAI? 

My favorite part of MAI has been the friendships that I have made and the socials that have helped new member friendships blossom as well. 

What has been the most rewarding part so far?

The most rewarding part of joining MAI has definitely been seeing the amount of impact that we have made in the world by packaging and sending out our donations.

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

The professor's bruin walk reviews MATTER LOL!

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

My favorite class at UCLA was a behavioral neuroscience class I took (Psych 119F) because I felt like I learned an enormous amount of content that was so interesting to me.

What has MAI taught you about yourself?

MAI taught me how much passion I have for sustainability and eco-conservatism!

What is your ultimate career goal or plans? 

I am planning on becoming a pediatric psychiatrist because it is so important that we focus on early development prevention and intervention of cognitive related issues. 

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

For some reason the first show that just popped into my mind was Home Improvement because it really does feel like we are improving our home (the world) as well as other individuals' experiences in this home with our mission. 

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

1. Yes pineapple belongs on pizza (it's only for those with a refined palette)

2. No- a hotdog is absolutely not a sandwich. 

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


Sort of forgot my sandwich order but their salads were amazingggg!

Cats or dogs? Sunrise or sunset? Dream job?



My dream job would be a world blogger because I love travelling and learning about other cultures.
