My name is Anel (Ahnnelle).
I am a mestiza, a blend of Spanish and Indigenous blood.
I say a mixture of cultures, powers and secrets.
I am on a mission to bridge educational needs with educational technology because learning in the 21st century is about more than just passing a test.
I come from the fringes of society; undocumented, poor and first generation college student.
Today I am a mother, wife, daughter, citizen of the United States, a Georgetown University graduate and a 1st Gen Educator & Innovator.
My philosophy for work and life is to seek-out untraditional paths in order to give rise to new insights . This mindset has been a portal to wonderful experiences, like my time as a hybrid student in the Learning, Design, and Technology Masters program at Georgetown University.
Today, I question processes, purpose, and outcomes with the lense of equity. This human quality is what makes me Robot Proof.
Thus, I put into the world a request to do meaningful work with people who want to bring about positive transformation through learning, design and technology.
