Portrait of Jamie Santos sitting in front of a wall covered in posters.

Jamie Zealor Santos

“I never would have thought I’d take an acting class nor write a poetry book or paint a mural, and yet CCA has afforded me these opportunities. For that, I am forever grateful. I’m not fit to make any kind of judgment call on my art, but I can tell you with confidence that CCA has made me a better person, and a forever-student who will never stop learning from others. From that, I can offer you the humblest of wisdoms: Be kind, stay flexible, and say yes.”

Paul Mendoza

“My challenge to this graduating class of 2022 is to maintain connections with each other and with the world, to explore the liminal spaces between the Don Quixote moments of brilliant self-realization and the Sancho Panza moments of humble advocacy and inquiry.”

Paul Mendoza (MBA Design Strategy 2022), Graduate Student Speaker
