Anna believes in turning her pain into power. After overcoming the struggles of being a gay teenager in Texas, she made it her mission to create an easy and safe way for LGBT+ youth to unite -- because there is strength in numbers. Anna began developing SanghaLink in 2013, starting with a website where LGBT+ youth could safely connect. She continues the work to expand SanghaLink and travels across the country speaking and advocating on behalf of LGBT+ youth.
