Our Guest: Angela Perez Baraquio (Miss Hawai'i 2000/Miss America 2001) also known as “Angie” has been a light to thousands of people. Her story is one like no other. As the eighth of ten children, Angie was born of Filipino immigrants who traveled to America in search of a better life for their family. Thirty years later, their daughter won the prestigious titles of Miss Hawai'i and Miss America and was able to travel all over the country to inspire others with her personal story of adversity, triumph, tragedy, and hope. In terms of diversity, Angela broke ground and made history as the first Asian-American woman, the only-Filipina woman, and the only teacher to win since the pageant’s inception in 1921.
Angela taught as an elementary classroom teacher in Catholic schools for five years. In 2003, Angela was invited by President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush as a special guest to a State Dinner at the White House honoring Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. From 2006-2008 she served as a Presidential appointee to President George W. Bush's President's Council on Service and Civic Participation with 25 high-profiled members: including AOL's Jean Case, Colt's NFL Head Coach Tony Dungy, Michael W. Smith, Hillary Duff, and Patricia Heaton from Everybody Loves Raymond.
