Ariana was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. When she was 11 years old she moved to the U.S where she quickly learned about her passion for different cultures, and intercultural habits regarding environmental conservation. She graduate from Florida State University (FSU) where she received a Bachelors of Science in Political Science and a Bachelor of Arts in Editing, Writing, and Media; she also studied international relations and French. With a strong interest in linguistics, writing, and media Ariana became involved with the International office at Florida State. Later on, she found the opportunity to work with the newly established FSU Office of Sustainability, where she could work within her other field of interest: environmental education. Here she worked and lead several sustainable development projects such as the Take Back the Tap campaign (a student-run activist campaign movement to end the sales of bottled water from campus) and Garnet and Gold Goes Green (a football game day recycling program). Her experience in community organizing and sustainable development took Ariana to intern for Food and Water Watch in D.C on their education and outreach department as an online community organizer.

Ariana is starting her Master's Program in the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources where she plans on applying her policy and media skills to research more effective methods of communication between the hard academic sciences to different communities. Ariana's different fields of interest bring her to the Gund to work on an economical meeting point where different aspects of our society are taken into consideration when valuing our sustainable progress.
