Illana is a Programme Coordinator, based in San Antonio, Texas. In her role, she supports the delivery of Quests and virtual programmes globally. Ilanna has spent the last few years serving the community she grew up in by creating avenues for participation for families with limited access to education. She is particularly drawn to issues surrounding borderlands and creating bridges, driven largely by her experience as the daughter of first generation Mexican-American parents and her time spent in Israel-Palestine. Ilanna holds a BS in Foreign Service from the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. In her free time, she enjoys tending her vegetable garden and listening to cumbia.
