Ana Teresa Valladares

Ana Teresa Valladares is from Caracas, Venezuela. She has a Law Degree from the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello and currently works at Impact Hub Caracas as  their Coordinator for Global Initiatives and Impact Measurement. 

During her university experience she had the opportunity to participate as acting Vice-President of the Law Student Council, Student Representative to the Law Faculty Council, and Law School’s Student Representative to the Student Movement. She was also part of the university’s Model United Nations Team to the Harvard National Model of United Nations, earning the Best Delegate, Best International Delegation and Best Delegation Award in 2017. 

Since she was 18 years old, Ana has volunteered in various political activities, including   election campaigns for Henrique Capriles, Miguel Pizarro and Carlos Ocariz. Before joining Impact Hub Caracas, she worked for the Law Firm Grau, García, Hernández y Mónaco under the tutelage of José Ignacio Hernández, current Special Attorney General of Venezuela where she contributed to special investigations and projects for the Harvard Center for International Development.

As a change maker, her dream is to build in Venezuela a solid network of social entrepreneurs and to create the necessary policies to make social innovation and entrepreneurship a “de facto” trend for all economic activities in the country and all other nations that suffer from underdevelopment. 

She firmly believes that Amani Institute will provide her the necessary tools to move from theory to effective practice and help her build a better and more loving world for all.
