Drive Time - Dylan's Blog - Episode 7 - Gonzalo Freixes - 6.16.16

You know him. You love him. You’ve traveled the world with him. But you probably didn’t know his whole story.

Adjunct Professor, Neidorf “Decade” Teaching Award Winner, and FEMBA Associate Dean Gonzalo Freixes in a candid, one-on-one interview discusses his family’s journey to America, and his lifetime career of paying it forward.

“Living the American Dream” is not a cliché for Dean Freixes. It is the story of his life. In this tribute to the power of education, Dean Freixes tells of his family arriving in the US as political refugees with all their worldly belongings in one suitcase. From these austere beginnings, Gonzalo’s life and career has touched thousands of UCLA students, undergraduate and graduate, both on-campus and around the world. And after graduation, his connections continue in ongoing relationships with SO many alumni.
