Anna Cherry

Anna Cherry was born in Missouri, raised in Arkansas, lived in Spain for two years, and is now residing in a Dominican neighborhood of New York City. Her Spanish isn’t as good as it should be. She’s a freelance writer and contributing editor at ¡Vaya Madrid!. Her work has appeared in Education Week Teacher, The Awl, and The Hairpin.

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. Find her on Twitter @unacereza. She wants to be your friend.
