Ana Navarro Flores was born in 1971 in Chinandega, Nicaragua, the youngest child in her family. She has two brothers and an older sister. Her father, Augusto “Tuto” Navarro worked as Nicaragua’s minister for agriculture. But he opposed the Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza; as a result, the Navarro family left the country in 1979.
As a seven-year-old, Navarro said in a recent interview, she was “thinking as so many refugees do, that it was only for a short time; never imagining that for me it was going to be a life-long change.”
After the Sandinista rebellion toppled Somoza, Navarro’s father opposed that regime, too, joining the “contras” — the American-backed anti-Sandinista insurgency.
“At his side, watching him, I learned to become involved politically, I grew up very sensitive to the meaning of the political system and to the crises in Latin America.”
Navarro enrolled the Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, a private Catholic college preparatory day school for girls in Coconut Grove and graduated from the University of Miami. She gained a Bachelor of Arts in Latin American Studies and Political Science in 1993. In 1997, she received a Juris Doctor from St. Thomas University Law School.

In 2001, Navarro worked as Ambassador to the United Nation’s Human Rights Commission, where she was a strong advocate for the denunciation of the Government of Cuba for human rights violations.

She beats Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, on 17 February 2017 after The Wall Street Journal reported that he charged about unfair coverage of Trump on CNN. Kushner met with an executive of CNN's, Gary Ginsberg, Time Warner, and criticized what he observes as unfair coverage of the Trump administration by the network.

Navarro shot back after the report, calling Kushner a "baby." "Really, Little Jared complaining about me cuz I get under President Daddy-in-Law's skin? Oh, baby boy, I'm so sorry. Little boy Kushner, tough guy who's supposed to achieve Middle East peace, is complaining about me to CNN. Boo-hoo!" Navarro said in a series of tweets.
