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

Gail Becker (Political Science ’86) talks about how inspiring her Daily Bruin reporter role was in shaping her professional future as a journalist and a public relations professional. She shares her deep appreciation for the core values of the UCLA experience – to encourage the active exchange of ideas and opinions and to be engaged with a community of leaders.

Today, Becker heads the Western Region office of Edelman PR.

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