Ana is a 28-year-old microbiologist, entrepreneur and college teacher.

“My mission is to apply my knowledge within the business and education sectors, and to aid people's self-development. Innovation is also the key to unlocking a sustainable future: we will never be able to change the world alone, but if we spread what we know to as many people as possible, the odds change.”
