Ana Tejeda

Student, Leader, Visionary

As an immigrant, daughter, scholar, and friend, Ana has to fulfill many roles. Though overtime, she has come to learn how these roles help fulfill her. She feels whole when she is surrounded by intellectuals, artists, and loved ones. During times of isolation, such as those that come with being an only child, Ana feels reflective. She likes to reflect on different aspects of society and is curious about the way things work. Ana questions society’s definition of success as she overcomes barriers to reach her fullest potential. She tries to teach others how to use their mindset as a strength, instead of it being a limitation. Ana feels confident as a debater, baker, linguist, and scientist.
