During the inaugural UCLA Day on May 17, 2008, ten alumni shared their reflections on UCLA and its impact on their lives.

Brian Maillian (Math-Computer Science ’71; M.B.A. ’74) tells an inspiring story about the tragedy he had to overcome as a student, his determination to strive and succeed, and the importance that academic and administrative support at UCLA played in his life.

Today, Maillian is a successful financial entrepreneur – the CEO of an investment-banking firm on Wall Street.

The next UCLA Day is planned for May 9, 2009.
