Ayla Choudhery was born in Syria, and now lives in the Washington D.C area. Attending college in the area, Ayla is already forging a path in medicine and an entrepreneurial career in hotel and hospitality management. These career interests are raised on the platform of philanthropy and humanitarianism, an area she would like to be very active in when she graduates. Ayla Choudhery’s goal is to use medicine and business to create sustainable environments and poverty alleviation programs for young adults and children in her local community and around the world. Currently attending Boston University, Ayla hopes to use her background to also help people by providing social services and advocating for strong community enrichment and development.
Having travelled back and forth to Pakistan as a child to a parent who work for the United Nations, Ayla also envisioned herself helping younger children both in Pakistan and Syria. Her visits to the country have only motivated her to improve on herself to be a leader and to work hard in her educational pursuits. She sees her eventual work in medicine and entrepreneurship as a platform to provide philanthropic efforts and opportunities to children and young adults in less fortunate environments. Ayla is currently building her philanthropy experience by volunteering with various organizations in the Washington D.C area and seeking guidance and mentorship from her father who works as a physician. Double majoring in Biology and Business Management, Ayla hopes to combine both degrees to give herself a competitive advantage in both fields.
