A proud Hispanic-American of Mexican descent, Anna was raised in the lower-income neighborhoods of Southern California by a single mother. She learned early in life that she would have to fight her way out of her surroundings to avoid being trapped in the welfare system and surrounded by systemic violence. So, she did.
Anna joined the United States Air Force (USAF) at age 19. She graduated from basic training with honors and became president of the Airman's Council, a professional development organization for USAF junior enlisted airmen. A recipient of the Air Force Achievement Medal, Anna was honorably discharged with five years of USAF active duty service and one year of service in the Air National Guard. Anna earned her undergraduate degree in Biology from the University of West Florida.
After leaving the Armed Forces, Anna turned her love of country into her life's work. She has served as the Director of Hispanic Engagement for Turning Point U.S.A. and currently serves as the Chairwoman of Hispanic Initiatives at PragerU. Anna has actively supported many philanthropic organizations including Force Blue, Mission Volant, Merging Vets & Players, and Veterans for Child Rescue, a non-profit focused on ending child trafficking. She has appeared across media outlets including Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, NEWSMAX TV, One American News Network, BlazeTV, The Daily Caller, and others.
