BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA - Cuando Ana Aceves tenía 12 años, estaba sentada en el porche de sus padres en la ciudad de Merced del Valle Central en California, levantó la vista hacia el cielo nocturno y tuvo un "viaje astral". Ella se vio a sí misma en el porche, y luego la ciudad y el estado, el planeta, y finalmente las estrellas.
Fue entonces que la energética estudiante de 23 años de edad, en su último año en UC Berkeley dice que supo exactamente lo que quería hacer. "Corrí dentro de la casa y le dije a mi mamá que quería ser una astróloga", explicó con una risa. "Creo que quieres decir una astrónoma", la corrigió su madre.
