She is a dedicated educator, planning to serve children with special needs, and a rising star in the disability advocacy movement. Throughout her time at Beloit, Ana self-designed her IDST major in disability studies while pursuing an education major and licensing to teach. She also engaged herself in many meaningful projects outside of campus on disability advocacy, such as interning in D.C. as a fellow in RespectAbility’s National Leadership Program and co-founding A Place for Us–a digital platform unifying, empowering, and educating disability rights activists in colleges across the country. I have no doubts that Ana will be a model to inspire many students in her future role as an educator and activist advocating for and empowering people living with disabilities.” - Jingjing Lou</p></em><div class="m-3 clearfix"><a href="/commencement/senior-profiles/index.php" class="d-inline-block pull-right"><i class="fa fa-refresh fa-2x"/></a></div></div></div></div>
