Anahi was born and raised in Pico Union, Los Angeles, and is a first-generation Indigenous student of Zapotec descent. This May, Anahi will be graduating from the University of California, Berkeley with a major in Sociology and a minor in Education. Currently, Anahi is the Social Media and Design Intern for Let’s Go To College CA. Outside of school, she is an organizer for the Oaxacan Youth Initiative and serves as the Co-director for OaxaCal. As a Zapotec woman, both of these spaces are important to her because they dedicate themselves to helping the Oaxacan community access and navigate higher education.
