While in college, Ariana Allen was inspired by conversations with her friends about their struggles navigating the ins and out of college. Curious she decided to turn these experiences into a paper for her Feminist Methods class. Through interviews, surveys, and research, she discovered that it wasn’t just her friends who struggled; it was a wider spread issue than she imagined. Inspired to do something about it, Ariana combined her love for media and she decided to launch EducatedLatina.com, as an online destination for college Latinas to turn to be empowered, enlightened, and entertained.
