The media star was born on July 7, 1986, to Armenian parents who lived in Northridge, Los Angeles, California, where she was also raised. Her native language, the one her parents raised her in, is called Armenian, but she is undoubtedly a citizen of the United States of America.
Ana went to California State University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism in 2007. She would later major in political science and public administration and graduate in 2010.
Ana credits her journalism career to journalist Barbara Walters of ABC’s 20/20. His first job after graduating in 2007 was as a production assistant at CBS radio station in Los Angeles. The enthusiastic journalist found the work very restricted, although she was happy to have a job, as it did not allow her to do what she would have liked, nor to express her views on the facts reported. So, in an effort to increase her job opportunities, she enrolled in a master’s degree program.
The journalist landed her pioneering job as the host of The Young Turks’ show and while she was quite skeptical about the name of the series, her thoughts were eased when it was explained to her that the name referred to people who have rebelled against societal expectations. She was supposed to work on the series for two weeks but, due to her strong interest, she managed to extend her stay. In an interview with Forbes, she revealed that her love for the show was mostly because it gave her a chance to air her views and not just follow a robotic way of presenting information.
The talented journalist became the writer for RawStory in 2015 and in addition to her journalism career, she is also a professor and lecturer at California State University Northridge, where she lectures on broadcast journalism.
