annaHi there! I was born in Mexico City and raised in Dallas, Texas. When my parents left Mexico, they left their parents and siblings behind. To avoid the loss of my cultural background, my parents sent me every summer to my grandparent's home in Monterey. So, growing up, I spent all my summers in places such as, Xtapa-Zihuatanejo, Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, Baja California, Mexico City, and Monterey of course. After having been exposed to the Aztec and Mayan cultures, I was hooked on Cultural awareness. So I sought out places in Mexico such as Talum, Chichen Itza, and Tenochtitlan and other remote places. Most, if not all, my travels have been driven by my desire to learn and understand new cultures. Before I started leading Globe Aware programs, a couple of years ago, I spent a couple of weeks in Cuzco, Peru in search of learning about the Inca and found a beautiful countryside and amazing people. My travels also include Puerto Rico, Austria, Germany, France, and England. I studied at SMU in Dallas and chose to focus on International studies in Oxford, England and Salzburg, Austria. Most of the jobs I have held have maintained or sought out the development of International relationships and appreciation of different cultures. As I continue to practice my interest in cultural awareness, I look forward to growing and sharing that interest with others. I’ve really had some fantastic experiences with Habitat for Humanity and Hearts and Hammers – great ways to feed the soul! - and hence am excited about the wonderful work we get to do with Globe Aware. I’m bilingual: Spanish and French. I’m really looking forward to meeting you!
