Andrew Mitchell

My name is Andrew Mitchell and I am the founder and president of Rooted Connections. I am originally from Long Beach, California, but I was raised in Fort Worth, Tx. I started in this business after graduating from Texas Christian University in May of 2022 with my degrees in Journalism and African American studies. I chose not to pursue a career in my degree field and embark on my entrepreneurial journey because of the freedom and opportunity that comes with it. My vision when starting Rooted Connections was to cultivate an environment of diverse, high achievement, opportunity, and personal development and unity. My passion is to give opportunities, as well as develop the leaders of tomorrow.

My name is Tajahya. I am originally from Minnesota, but after traveling around and outside of the United States over the last several years, I decided to set my roots here in New Orleans with my son after falling in love with the community and culture. After I obtained my degrees in Liberal Arts, History, and Sociology, I transitioned to a pre-law track majoring in Paralegal Studies. My experiences and education have taught me to acknowledge and learn from the past, but always strive for continuous and positive change. Each decision I have made has been with the intention of living a better life and becoming a better version of myself every day. Rooted Connections has provided me with the foundation, tools, and support to be able to create the future I imagine and grow in ways I couldn't have done on my own.
