“Anna was an exceptionally charismatic and intelligent young girl. She lived fearlessly in ways that most of us only aspire to. Her outgoing personality meant that everyone was a friend, and her exuberant spirit earned her the nickname of “the diva” from her parents. Her abundance of love and energy was focused on her little brother, Leo. She took it upon herself to be “the best big sister” and showered 3-year-old Leo with love and attention”, her GoFundMe Page said.
