Meet the Founder

Anabel Lopez, the founder of Hola Everyone, executed this social venture at the 2019 Refugee Livelihood Lab, a project of RADIUS at Simon Fraser University.

Anabel has been teaching Spanish in the United States and Canada since 2008. Teaching Spanish while exploring the diversity and complexity of the Mexican culture has been a real passion for Anabel and a true desire to see her students improve their Spanish and cultural competence.

Our goal

Our goal is to better our communities and lives in the process. As a social enterprise, we provide FREE group lessons to our valued men and women that provide essential services (healthcare, educators, social service workers, police officers and so on). These organizations may connect us to people who want to study or improve their Spanish. 

If you represent an organization that may benefit from our FREE lessons, please send us an email at community@holaeveryone.com
