International Relations Team

The International Relations (IR) Team extends FISH's outreach in Mexico by fostering cross-cultural interaction between FISH and the community. FISH achieves this goal by bridging the language barrier between both parties; FISH associates are taught Spanish, and English lessons are offered for the community. In addition, community events are organized to interact with the community and familiarize themselves with our organization.

Ayesha Parikh 
Director of International Relations

Ayesha is a second year Psychobiology and Political Science double major. She joined FISH in fall 2017 because she wanted to be part of the family of members who were passionate about providing sustainable health services, on a international scale. FISH has given her the opportunity to critically evaluate effective health intervention, learn about global health ethics, and actively utilize Spanish to create meaningful relationships within the community. In the past year Ayesha has served as a member of the Research and Development team. As Co-director of Research and Development this year, Ayesha is thrilled to push FISH into a new direction by implementing tools to track data which will be able to show the impact of FISHS' services. Outside of FISH, Ayesha writes and programs for the UCLA student health magazine, Total Wellness. She also works in the Brain Institute researching mutations in genes, which affect protein interactions potentially causing neurodegenerative diseases. In her free time, Ayesha likes to cliff-dive, go running, and cook.
