As a young child, Anna Libey did not understand the difference between her family and the families of her friends. “I naturally assumed that all mothers were like mine,” she says. “That all fathers who worked long days came home to even longer ones, and that all families had nannies and groceries delivered by a special truck.” It wasn’t until she grew older that Anna understood the real impact MS has had on her mother and family. Even with this challenge, Anna has excelled academically, winning numerous awards with the Academic Decathlon before graduating from Lovejoy High School in Lucas. Anna has set her sights on becoming an environmental engineer as she attends Columbia University in New York.
