Juanairis Collado

ÀNI Art Academies Waichulis

Juanairis Collado was born in 1977 in the Dominican Republic. At the age of three, her parents moved to the United States. She was interested in music and art from an early age, but family financial instability made chasing these dreams impossible. Instead, Juanairis raised a son and a daughter and is a new grandparent. In 2020, she and her husband Francisco heard about ÀNI from a friend, and they both began in December of that year. Juanairis is working her way through the program and is excited to see where it takes her.
