Hi, my name is Mai! Pronounced like the month, “May”. I graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2017 with a degree in Digital Media and Design Business Strategies. After graduation, I took time to travel. I took a month to complete a cross country road trip. Having never been out of the country, my next venture was to volunteer abroad. For a month I volunteered at a wildlife rehabilitation center in South Africa. I then returned to South Africa five months later to complete a veterinary course at a cheetah breeding center. This inspired me to apply to Masters in Conservation Medicine Program. I am currently working full time as a Social Media Specialist for a newspaper publishing company in Connecticut, The Day and starting the MCM program this fall.
