Ana Colon is a bcINTERN at buildingcommunityWORKSHOP. She is interested in how [bc] takes into consideration the social, economic, and environmental issues facing communities in need and its approach to community engagement.

Having lived in disadvantaged neighborhoods herself, she became interested in learning to help these communities through design. She did research with a team at her university on social justice issues in architecture in 2018.
