Hi, my name is BreAnna Vera.
I am a Family Science major/ senior.
I grew up in a single parent family with my mother, Michelle, and my brother, Chris. My family values time together greatly. My great grandmother, who is 93 years old still lives on her own on our family property in the mountains in Loveland, Colorado. My mother, brother and I visit about every couple of months. I strive to be like my great grandmother one day who is independent, walks in the mountains everyday, and carries a rattle snake killing stick with her (that she actually uses). My mother has taught me to always stand up for what I believe in, which is why I am looking forward to learning more about human trafficking in India.
I grew up in a small town, Sidney, Nebraska.
I love animals, I have two cats and two dogs who are the center of my husband and my life.
I hope to learn more than I can explain in India, but most importantly, I hope to learn things that will help me come back to Lincoln and spread awareness about the issue that many do not even know occur right here in Nebraska. I look forward to an experience of a lifetime, learning about the reality of what these women go through, and being able to know more about it, I can work harder to help prevent it.
