Ana Lorena from Cafe Famu

The creative story below is about an individual's action to create change for girls and women. It was submitted to the Girl Rising Champions of Change Contest, powered by HP. Being featured on this site does not mean that an individual is a contest finalist. All artwork is property of the original artist. Girl Rising has selected to feature highlights from the creator's work, rather than the piece in its entirety.

"We're excited to share the story of Ana Lorena from Cafe Famu. She literally embodies the saying, 'when life gives you lemon, make lemonade'! Watch this video to learn more about how she does that while fighting gender based discrimination in coffee farms. Her coffee is so delicious that she has already sold out this year, but we're excited to bring her coffee to your doorsteps early next year! Help us welcome, the brilliant and inspiring, Ana Lorena!"
