Mayim Bialik

Mayim Bialik, born Mayim Hoya Bialik, on December 12, 1975. Her heritage is Jewish, descended from holocaust survivors that moved to the U.S. She grew up attending both public and religious schools while she worked on commercials, and television spots. She’s best known for her lead role as the titular character Blossom, from 1990 to 1995. Her education took a turn for the extreme when she chose UCLA over Yale and Harvard, both schools had accepted her. She obtained her B.S in Neuroscience, and Hebrew and Jewish Studies from UCLA in 2000. She stayed at UCLA to get her Ph.D, specializing in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in adolescents with Prader Willi syndrome. While in school becoming Dr. Mayim Bialik, she kept her feet wet by working seven media projects and having her first baby. Since being done with formal education she’s kept up with both her religious studies and parenting studies. She’s also joined the cast of the award winning show ‘The Big Bang Theory’, as Amy Farrah Fowler, prompting a resurgence of her international popularity.
