Ana Paulina Chavira is a Mexican journalist who has been wearing a prosthetic leg since 1998, when she was diagnosed with cancer. Her life as an amputee changed when she got a MAS socket —she was a model and speaker for Ana’s Leg educational program implemented by Össur. She has worked as a journalist at Reforma (Mexican newspaper), at The New York Times en Español (the Spanish version of the American newspaper) and now at Fox Sports, as a women's football analyst. She is the proofreader for Nexos, a Mexican magazine. She has also specialized as a linguistic advisor for Mexican media and private businesses such as Google.
