Sergio started with MESA at San Joaquin Delta College. That’s when things started looking up.
“To say the least, nothing was stable,” he said. Sergio overcame family and financial struggles, eventually transferring to San Diego State University.
He awarded the prestigious California State University Trustee’s Award for Outstanding Achievement and will graduate in 2015 with a degree mechanical engineering. Attending the MESA Student Leadership Conference and other MESA events connected him with great contacts that led to internships and other opportunities.
He gives back to MESA by judging middle school and high school MESA day competitions.
“I’m a firm believer of MESA, it has change my life professionally academically and emotionally.”
