From Community College to UC Irvine to D.C.: ACCT Intern Ayman Mendoza

October 1, 2019

Ayman Mendoza is a recent graduate of the University of California, Irvine, who transferred to the university from a community college. He completed a summer internship in Washington, D.C., and while he was here, he told us that "choosing community college was the best academic decision I ever made." 

In this podcast, the "public Ivy" grad explains why he feels it's time to stop stigmatizing community colleges and their students, and to recognize the value and high quality of community college educations.
