About Anna



Hi! My name is Anna. Welcome here! Here are a few things about me.
  • I am a Low German-speaking Canadian Citizen, born in the city of Nuevo Ideal in Durango, Mexico.
  • Whenever I tell someone about my background, I could go on forever – there is so much to tell and I love to talk about it. But there is never enough time to explain the whole story.
  •  I often leave people more confused than they were before. 
  •  I speak Low German, Spanish and English.  I would love to learn French, I am working on it.
  •  I was never asked, but I can’t pick what I want to be when I grow up -- I love too many things.
  • I work as a Low German health worker at a community health center.  I love my job. I am so lucky I get to do a bit of most things I love: learning new things, helping people, speaking all the languages I know, cooking, shopping, demonstrating recipes, being a leader, and dressing as I please.   
  •  I love that I am free to dress however I please.  I don’t feel guilty for not wearing the Mennonite dress anymore.
  • I watch one hour of Spanish telenovelas every day, with a Spanish/English dictionary on hand.  If there is a word I don’t understand, I look it up and practice writing sentences. It keeps it fresh in my mind. 
  • I bake but love to cook Mexican-inspired Low German food.
  •   I read self-help books.  I have had to do a lot of self-learning in my life.
  • My favorite book so far is Irma Voth by Miriam Toews. Irma’s story reminds me of myself. I also loved Mennonite in a Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen.
