SJSU has truly become my second home - a place where I have found lifelong friends and mentors. SJSU’s proximity to the Tech industry has opened doors to countless opportunities for me. Just yesterday, I had the privilege of networking with over 30 CEOs at a conference. After that, I went hiking to enjoy the breathtaking coastal views of the Bay Area.
