Meet Anna! Our exotic Midwestern Laner of the Week!! Anna was born in the Middle East and grew up in the Midwest. She is half Jordanian and half Chinese. She describes herself in Disney terms of being half Jasmine and half Mulan. We LOVE her sense of humor and creative nature! Anna is an actor, writer, improviser, host, and dancer. When she is not performing or working on the Lane, you can find her cutting loose around Chicago and loving the summer days in the city! Anna recently wrote and performed a one woman show about growing up as an Arab-Asian-American in the Midwest, and you can check out her work at annayee.com. We love having this fun loving powerhouse on our team!
