2014 Master of Ceremonies

Asif Ansari, Master of Ceremonies

Born in Canada, but raised on the streets of Houston, Asif Ansari was a basketball phenom in high school.  He was drafted in the second round of the 2010 NBA draft, but decided to attend the prestigious University of Texas.  He pursued a degree in Finance and after a unexpected trip to the doctor after a career ending injury decided to attend medical school.  His interests include hip hop, bird watching and he is a film enthusiast.  In his free time he enjoys long walks on the beach, candle light dinners and assessing global geopolitical change.  Asif is currently a fourth year medical student at UTHSCSA and is applying for residency training in Anesthesiology.


Chris Yan, Master of Ceremonies

Few people have lived a life as interesting as Chris Yan. Born in northeast China as the second cousin of the great grand-nephew of the Last Emperor of China, Chris immigrated to the US in the early 90s to escape bad music and heinous amounts of math homework. He was hailed as one of greatest creative minds of his generation when, as a child in upstate New York, he combined Sriracha hot sauce with Kentucky Fried Chicken.  Chris is also an aspiring writer and musician, and he loves the Houston Rockets. He is currently a 4th year medical student on leave for a medical humanities fellowship, but will return next year to apply for residency in internal medicine
