Ana Aldaco

Community Engagement

Ana Aldaco was born and raised in the City of Bell. She started at Cerritos Community College where she earned her AA in Geography. Later, transferred to UC Santa Barbara and earned her BA in Geography. She always had an appreciation for the environment since she was younger and started to escalate as she got older when she took her first geography course at Cerritos.

While attending UC Santa Barbara, she had access to better air quality, smelled clean air, the freeways and railroads were more than a mile away, and lived nowhere near an industrial site. This made her perspective on her community completely change, and realized she wanted to have a voice to represent low-income communities to fight for environmental justice. With this much passion towards the environment, Ana wishes to one day pursue a career where she gets to work with low-income communities of color for environmental justice.
