Ana is a first-generation xicana from Nogales, Sonora, México and South Tucson. She obtained her B.A. in Law and Spanish Literature from the University of Arizona in May 2018. Prior to joining the Florence Project, Ana formed part of the UA Immigrant Student Resource Center as a college navigator. There, she fought alongside undocumented students to expand and create resources for DACA and undocumented students on campus. She also served on Scholarships A-Z’s executive team for 3 years as the Student Action Committee Director and the Dream Educational Empowerment Program Liaison with United We Dream. Both of these groups strive to make education accessible to all students regardless of their immigration status by challenging policies and uplifting the voices and the leadership of undocumented students and families. Ana enjoys cheesy jokes, dancing, reading, and fighting against systemic injustices.
