When not enjoying the Southern California weather during the school year, she lives in Portland, Oregon. Ann enjoys knitting, watching movies, and playing violin in the group Mariachi Serrano de Claremont. She hopes to pursue a career in broadcast journalism after finishing her studies, and can&#39;t wait to document her exploration of the rich history and culture of Andalucia during her time in Granada.</span></p>
