anna was born in San Diego to a Mexican (Catholic) mother and a Kurdish (Muslim) father and learned from a young age about bias and discrimination; in many cultures it is not socially ideal to be either Mexican or Muslim, and she is both. Growing up with parents who love and respect each other despite their cultural differences, Hanna knew these biases were wrong, and she decided to change the misconceptions people have, while also helping refugees and immigrants who lack proper resources and educational tools. Her first step was to educate herself, something she dove head first into, receiving a master’s degree in International Relations from Harvard University, and a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from National University (California).
