Thanks for stopping by! My name is Rachel and I am a third-year Psychobiology major and Food Studies minor. I have always been interested in issues of health and wellness, and being part of Total Wellness has only further consolidated that zeal. My journey as a staff writer and now, as Editor-in-Chief has played an important role in shaping some of the goals and values I have today. For example, it has encouraged me to seek out new ways to be healthy in my own life, as well as inspired me to empower others to take charge of their own health. When I am not working with my team at Total Wellness or frantically finishing up assignments for classes, you can find me practicing yoga, developing recipes, watching Food Network, and exploring vegan spots in LA.
Hey there, my name is Robert and I’m a fourth-year Neuroscience major and Global Health minor. I’m currently the managing editor for Total Wellness, but I started off as a writer. I’ve been a part of the organization since my sophomore. I’m passionate about teaching people about how to practice self-care and to improve their health and being a part of this magazine has enabled me to do just that.

Hey there! I’m Prasann, a fourth-year Human Biology and Society B.S. major from San Jose, California. Being part of Total Wellness allows me to learn and write about fascinating health and wellness topics, like what spices to add to my food or what medicine to take. On my downtime, you can find me drinking chai and other kinds of tea, cooking Indian food, and thinking about spirituality. In the future, I hope to travel the world to study and treat infectious diseases.
Hi, I’m Bhavya and I’m a third year Biochemistry major and aspiring Cognitive Science minor! Becoming a writer and editor for Total Wellness has allowed me to pursue my passion for health education and my interest in writing. Outside of TW, I love dancing and promoting South Asian culture through UCLA Taara. In my free time, I enjoy reading and listening to Hamilton!
My name is Sarah Noorani, and I am a fourth-year Neuroscience major. I am the copy editor for Total Wellness. I initially joined TW as a writer because I wanted to learn more about health and spread health awareness at UCLA. Being part of this organization has both increased my own knowledge and allowed me to relate scientific information to the UCLA student body in a way that is easy to understand. Even though I love being healthy, I still love having boba (who doesn't?). I also enjoy running, baking, and hanging out with friends.
Hello! My name is Stephanie, and I’m a third-year Psychobiology major at UCLA. I am currently the Art Director of Total Wellness and have been a staff designer ever since freshman year at UCLA. As part of my role, I help manage a team of staff designers, review drafts and final designs of the magazine spreads, and compile everyone’s work into the beloved magazine that we make! I joined Total Wellness because I have a love for design and thought it would be the perfect opportunity for me to continue that passion in college and, simultaneously, improve UCLA’s health literacy. A little bit about me: my favorite foods are rice and sushi; I’m a really big movie nerd and love having deep conversations about life; in my free time, I love looking for beautiful places to go someday and spending time with family!
