Anna, 25, is a Boston College alumna (class of 2013) with a degree in Communications and a minor in International Studies. She currently lives in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., with her French Bulldog, and works as a Communications Associate for Patrick Kennedy's The Kennedy Forum.

Since starting her college career studying abroad in London for her first semester through Northeastern University, Anna spent the rest of her college years at BC from 2010-2013. Anna rode for the Boston College Equestrian Team and wrote for The Heights, the independent student newspaper of Boston College. After writing for the paper, a travel blog called Let's Go, and currently writing for her own personal blog, she loves writing everything from lifestyle and advice articles to mind/body/spirit pieces for the college girl and young adult demographic. When she's not writing or working, Anna also practices yoga and meditation regularly, and spends time with close friends and family.

Likes: writing, meditation, horses and horseback riding, yoga, philosophy, psychology, art, kickboxing, seeing the world, reading new things, trying new things, and adventure. Dislikes: slow walkers, negativity, close-mindedness, and definitely blood, but mostly slow walkers.
