Founder and President
Anna Lin is currently a senior at the Brookline High School. She has been in the Brookline High School’s Honors English class for 3 years and has traveled to 15+ countries such as Thailand, Turkey, and Switzerland, giving her a vast cultural experience. Growing up in a multicultural family, Anna had the inspiration to start a program that taught English to students in Thailand after her first visit to the country in 5th grade. She was introduced to a school there and was offered an English and Math teaching position. Through the experience, she began to realize the power of connection and global solidarity of students. Those philosophies helped Anna gather international support and start Language Virtual in 2020.
