Ana Gerena, Mariposa Center Director

If Ana Gerena — “Ana Banana” to the girls — wrote her life story, the title would be Work In Progress. Bet on seeing it at Barnes & Noble one day, because Ana’s top goal in life is to be a book publisher: right now, her favorite book is A House Grows on Mango Street. Speaking of houses, if Ana won the lottery, the first thing she’d buy is a house, and if she could have any ability it would be mindreading: some of the girls think she’s already got that down!
