Charlotte Gataiman, Business

Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) – Los Angeles Mission College, California

I’m the risk management intern for AECOM through the BuildLACCD program. I’m a business major at Los Angeles Mission College, which is located along the picturesque mountains that line the San Fernando Valley.

Going to school at a campus with serene nature views and driving through the captivating bustle and city culture of Los Angeles to get the Monterey Park office, I get to appreciate the beauty and diversity of Los Angeles that is often taken for granted. I love being part of a company that is working to innovate this city into an even greater place to live and work.

My parents always taught me to take advantage of all the opportunities open to me, and I’m very determined to make the most of this internship. I hope to learn as much as I can and gain experience that few of my student peers can match. I know this opportunity will be invaluable as I pursue my education and career. I’m looking forward to see what awaits me here!
