Survalienne Stories

Ana Velazco Bello


Ana joined Surval Montreux in September 2020 to follow the Swiss Gap Year programme. She is currently at Tulane University, New Orleans, studying International Development studies.

Ana had a fantastic experience at Surval Montreux and she says: "The Surval Swiss Gap programme prepared me for life at university and more! In my first semester at college I had to balance my time between studying, doing assignments, and exploring the city of New Orleans with my new friends, but Surval had prepared me for this, and gave me the confidence to know I can handle my new responsibilities. I have learned that as long as you believe in yourself, you will succeed."

Ana is excited about her role as a Surval Ambassador and keen to help other girls thinking of joining the Surval Swiss Gap programme.
