After a celebrated career as a Television Broadcast Journalist in Liberia, and Special Press Secretary to the country’s first woman Minister of Agriculture, Angela immigrated to the United States, following the bloody and brutal coup d’etat in her native Liberia. She developed the passion as an advocate for women and girls against injustices and violence after her sister was beaten to death by her husband.The first Liberian woman to ever pen and publish a full-length novel, Angela is now an accomplished and award-winning author. Her literary work includes the novels, Exiled – within the Bowels of American Society (published 2001) and When the Games Froze (published 2014). She also co-authored the biography of Sarian Bouma; Welfare to Millionaire (published 2004). The proceeds from her second novel were donated to help build a school in Liberia, The Hope Academy, where both girls and boys would learn about the risks of violence against children. Since then, Angela has authored two children’s books and a training manual about FGM. She recently served on a special committee with the Council of the Great City Schools to research, compile and write an educational toolkit on FGM to be used by teachers, nurses and school counselors in school districts throughout the U.S. In 2014, Angela and Global Woman P.E.A.C.E.
