Anna’s 5-year plan includes living in Central and South America, specifically Mexico City, Guadalajara, Buenos Aires, and Santiago de Chile. She may never marry, but if she does, she intends to make it someone with the last name Garcia, so her last name can be Cherry-Garcia, like the ice cream. She is a fan of ice cream.
