Introductory Profile: About Ana Stephen Lassiter

I have chosen my mom to give as much information as possible about the her experiences in poverty, in her home country of Panama.

My mom is a very hard working person, always giving her 110% on everything as a mom and in her job. Although she does not have a college degree, that isnít and will never stop her from achieving anything. She is silly, fun, supportive, enjoys tennis, and spending time with her family. She long brown hair, has an audible Spanish accent, and often wears glasses. She grew up in Panama for the majority of her life until she moved to the US with my dad, for better opportunities, and is fluent in English and Spanish. She enjoys cooking and makes the best arroz con pollo, ensalada de papas, and empanadas in the entire universe.

Some questions asked, during the interview, were about her childhood, the Panamanian education system, the conditions of her neighborhood; areas around it as well, and she also voiced her opinions about the federal government in Panama and solutions towards the end of poverty in her home country.
