As we pause to reflect on the life and legacy of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., we are reminded of a question he often posed in his speeches: “What are you doing for others?”
Dr. Sneha Shah has dedicated her life to others, a commitment especially exhibited this past year.
Shah, an immigrant from India, says she always found comfort in math and science. But only when she moved to the United States as a teenager with her family and later attended Marquette University in Wisconsin did her love for healthcare emerge.
“Becoming a physician felt really right. My focus can be on my patients, and I can channel my energy into helping those that need it,” Shah said.

Pro-Trump insurrectionists storm D.C. Capitol as Colorado Republicans in Denver protest in solidarity
Ms. Mayhem reporters were on the ground in both Washington, D.C. and Denver as insurrectionists seized the Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021. The group pro-Trump extremists caused lockdowns in both cities and delayed the certification of the election by U.S. Congressional members. Several lawmakers, including President Donald Trump and Republican Congress members, have repeated false claims of election fraud since November 2020, stirring conspiracy theories that ultimately led to the actions on Wednesday.
President Trump called on Vice President Mike Pence to reject the electoral votes, a request Pence ultimately ignored. After returning to the Congressional chambers following the attempted insurrection, U.S. lawmakers certified President-elect Joe Biden's election victory early morning Jan. 7. There were 147 Republicans who voted to overturn the election results despite their rhetoric contributing to insurrectionist behavior.
Shortly after the certification, President Trump—who had told his supporters he would "never concede"—said in a statement “there will be an orderly transition on January 20th.”

Ms. Mayhem is a female-owned, Denver-based online publication dedicated to authentic, in-depth news and uncovering the stories of underrepresented voices. We work to spark conversation about inclusivity and promote people who make waves within their communities.
We cover major stories from perspectives that are rarely seen from more mainstream outlets.
