Maya Yang


Maya Yang is a third-year student, double-majoring in English and Political Science. Born and raised in Abu Dhabi before moving to Los Angeles for college, she is particularly interested in the political and social affairs of the Middle East and its relations with the West, and the United Nations in general. In addition to working with The Generation, Maya is an intern at Gulf State Analytics, a geopolitical risk consultancy firm, a research assistant at UCLA’s Center for Middle East Development (CMED), and a Peer Learning Facilitator and Supervisor at the Undergraduate Writing Center. In her free time, she enjoys sampling different types of oatmeal, music-surfing, and occasionally finds herself in ‘third-culture kid’ identity crises that never seem to go away.
