Ana Avendaño Torres
Ana Avendaño Torres, is originally from Ayoquezco de Aldama, from the Central Valley of the region of Oaxaca, Mexico. Her family immigrated to the United States in 2000. Her mother wanted their children to obtain a better life and by immigrating to a higher educated country, they would have the opportunity for advancement. Her mother worked two jobs for many years, she worked as much as she could to support the family and most importantly to send her children to college. This May 2017 Ana will be the first in my family to obtain a bachelor’s degree in sociology from California State University Channel Island.
