Ana Lucia was born in Argentina and came to Canada at a young age with her mother and grandmother. She completed her degree in Anthropology, French and Spanish at U of C before moving to Ukraine, Toronto and then back to Calgary. Ana Lucia is a pen pal to a dentist in New York, her former neighbour in Toronto, and several long-time friends in Ukraine. She sees the world through a storytellers lens and finds inspiration when connecting with people from various walks of life.
Ana is a self-described vanilla-over-chocolate, cats-over-dogs kind of person. She has worked within the non-profit sector for eight years and attributes her motivation for social change to the personal connections she has to issues.
She believes in working towards a world in which everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential and admires most the people in her life that turn their ideas into action.
Ana Lucia is an avid cyclist on the road and in the spin studio. She also enjoys photography, cooking and going for walks.
