María del Real Mendoza was a CCC senior for the 2020-2021 school year. She was admitted to the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida. She will study Criminology and International Studies. Congratulations, María!
What do you look forward to the most about studying in the US and at your university in particular?
What is the best memory or experience you have had during your years as a CCC member?
What has being part of the CCC meant for you? How has it helped you?
What would you say to the students who are going to start being part of the CCC next year?
Do things in advance–do not do it last minute! I think that this has probably marked a difference between getting accepted because I did things with enough time to go through them and not rush. Make the most out of your Writing Mentor, too; they’re absolutely great!
