Trials and Tribulations The timeline of Denise Mitchell
Family <ul><li>A lthough I was not born until the 90s, my history begins much earlier than that. My family emigrated from Mexico to the United States in the mid 1970s . Poverty, oppression, and tragedy left them with little to no opportunity in Mexico. My grandmother, mother, aunts, and uncle risked everything to start a new life. When they settled in the U.S., my grandmother married, and my mother and aunts began their education, enabling my generation with a new beginning and a new home. </li></ul>From left to right: 1974 . My aunt Roberta, my mother Eva, my uncle John, my grandmother Rosa, my aunt Maria. My grandfather Gene and grandmother Rosa. Late 70s. My mother Eva. Late 70s.
Beginnings: I was born September 8, 1990 in San Diego, CA to a multicultural family.
Education/Career I am currently pursuing an English degree at California State University of Fullerton. Once I successfully obtain a Bachelors degree, I would then like to further my education in another field hopefully awarding me with a Masters. For the time being I am a tutor at Chaparral High School. It’s been an wonderful experience. I am very fortunate to be able to give back to a high school that I once attended.
Personal Enjoyments Photography, filming, nature, biking, writing, painting, camping, cloud watching, cooking, spending time with family , friends, and my boyfriend are among some of my favorite things to do. I love life.
Future Endeavors To Travel & Explore… I would love more than anything to travel abroad to Greece, France, the UK, South Africa and Japan.
