As a young girl, Juana had a number of interests. Like most children, she enjoyed playing and making up games. She was curious about the world around her and was often eager to explore it. Juana was an active child who took part in volleyball. She was a church member. In her spare time she liked embroidering and sewing. However, to Juana, the most fun to be had was simply playing and spending time with her friends.

While growing up, some of her best friends were Estela Solis and Ramona Paz along with Yolanda Jaramillo. Later in life, she became friends with Edelmira and Dalila.
