TV star and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik visited UC San Diego last March. I had the wonderful opportunity to act as a visual designer and event coordinator to help bring the experience to life.
Have you ever heard of the show "Big Bang Theory"? UC San Diego had the privilege of hosting an actress from the show: TV Star and neuroscientist Mayim Bialik. During her visit, she participated in a Meet 'n Greet event and later gave a talk about her experiences as an academic, actor, and STEM advocate.
As a part of the team tasked with making the experience a reality, I primarily focused on the Meet 'n Greet event that took place prior to her talk. During the Meet n' Greet, students and faculty could take a photo with Mayim, get her autograph, and enjoy a catered sampling of recipes from Mayim's very own cookbook. I helped with logistical event planning and preparation, as well as enhanced the event's branding by designing materials such as the event tickets and photo stubs.
