Annis Barron is a sophomore and Spanish major from Duluth, Georgia. Annis has always had a passion for service and realized this love while volunteering in some of Atlanta's most impoverished communities. With a strong connection to her Afro Panamanian identity Annis has a strong desire to learn about the experiences of other marginalized Latinos in the Americas and the Caribbean. She realized her Latin roots and love for Latin culture through the study of Spanish. Annis plans to attend a graduate program or law school and work at a non-profit organization that empowers minorities. She is also exploring immigration law so that she may use her language skills to help people who are looking for a fresh start. Annis enjoys singing and dancing salsa in her living room, traveling, cooking, and learning about other cultures.
