How Daisy Gonzales went from foster care to the top of the nation’s largest system of higher education
Daisy Gonzales is a remarkable woman. She entered foster care at age 2, left foster care at 17, enrolled in college at 18, had 3 jobs during school, and earned a Ph.D. Now she is California's new acting community colleges chancellor. Amazing! “I survived many different systems that were not built to help me succeed, from foster care to being an English-language learner to being a first-generation college student." #FosterYouthSuccess #fostercare #fosteryouth
California's new acting chancellor is optimistic for the future of the community colleges despite the coronavirus pandemic and enrollment losses.
