Maria Chavez Mendoza

Pepperdine played a pivotal role in my personal and professional development. As a first-generation college student, I had big dreams that I wanted to accomplish, but had no clue where to start. Through my involvement in various campus organizations such as Posse, Housing and Residence Life, Alpha Omega, and Delta Sigma Pi, I developed life-changing relationships that helped me pave the way to making my dreams a reality. Additionally, Pepperdine’s supportive staff and professors provided encouragement and guidance as I explored my passions and talents to pursue a career in the business world. I am extremely thankful that I leaned into and made the most out of all the invaluable resources and programs Pepperdine offers, such as the Career Coaching Program hosted by the Career Center, where I was equipped with the tools and skills needed to excel in professional internships and transition into a full-time role at my dream company. Pepperdine will always have a special place in my heart because where and who I am today is a direct result of the incredible Wave family that served as my pillar during the beautiful growing pains of becoming a young adult and professional.
