Denisse Leon, who graduated from ASU in 2007, talks about her own journey to pull together her many interests and the idea that you can’t really make mistakes as a student—each “mistake” is just a new experience.
Denisse Leon moved to the United States about 6 years ago from Mexico City to attend ASU, where she was an Entrepreneurship Ambassador in the spring of 2007. She graduated in May with a bachelor’s degree in social and behavioral sciences, and is currently doing Americorps service at the National Farm Workers Center at El Mirage. She also works as a freelance web designer and marketing consultant, and plans to apply to the University of Oregon for a master’s in arts administration or intercultural service, leadership and management. Her main interests lie in helping promote the arts through different media and using art to create social change.
