A graduate of Azusa Pacific University with a degree in Cinematic Arts (emphasis in Animation), Emma Mitchell joined the Ambassador team in May 2022 where her passion for story-telling is being utilized in conveying graphically (and otherwise) the stories of those ministries we’re privileged to serve. Her background also includes participation in the much-respected Disney College Program.
Growing up in Ojai, Emma is now a resident of Anaheim and attends Anaheim City Church where she serves on the tech/hospitality team and is also a high school youth group leader. (See below for what else she enjoys in Orange County now!)
Her love of art continues to flourish, still enjoying drawing and illustrating. Recently she’s been working on illustrating a children’s book for a friend and making her own bullet journals. On the weekends you can find her either on a walk or browsing antique stores (plenty nearby!).
As a story-teller myself, my favorite Bible story is . . . in John 4, the woman at the well. She was a Samaritan woman with a questionable background, yet Jesus saw right past that and took the time to talk with her and graciously answer her questions. When He revealed how intimately He knew her heart and past, she responded not with shame, but with enough joy to want to share it with her whole town.
When I was much younger, I wanted to . . . be a veterinarian! Once I realized how much science was involved I quickly changed my mind.
One thing I love about Orange County is . . . how diverse our food options are! You can get authentic Ethiopian, Thai and Mexican just on one street.
