Jonathan Arias was born in Mazatlan, Mexico and raised in the Central Valley when his family migrated in 1988 and has been his home ever since. Jonathan is an MJC alumnus and dedicates himself to the success of people from the community. Jonathan received his Bachelor of Science in Business Management at University of Phoenix in 2012. His bi-cultural background and passion for youth has led him to a number of volunteer opportunities and community leadership roles. Jonathan is grateful for the platform that Modesto Junior College provides because it is aligned with his personal, professional, and life goals, which is to be at the service of others and students from the central valley community are at the heart of such goals.
