Angela currently works in political digital media where she works with activists all across the country to build unique and impactful advocacy campaigns.
By joining Social Impact 360, she was able to add a business element to her college education that ultimately paved a pathway to her future.
During her freshman year with SI360, she started a company that designed, sourced, and distributed women’s accessories with positive messages. Just as the business began to flourish, Angela became ill with a chronic autoimmune disorder and had to stop running the business.
“When I was spending time recovering, I was reading the news and interacting with people on social media. Thanks to the business training provided by SI360, I recognized an unmet need in American politics: There are thoughtful and innovative people across this nation, but they had no platform to share their ideas and garner support,” said Angela. She now builds advocacy campaigns for activists at the local, state, and national levels. She works with people who start petitions about issues that may be political, social, or neither.
Angela credits SI360 as a major building block in the foundation of her professional career. She continues writing and sharing socially impactful stories, hoping to spread awareness and help individuals who may be in need.
The SI360 connection
“The fellowship is a program that takes driven kids and gives them the tools to start and run a business in the world,” said Angela. SI360 gave Angela the ambition to focus on social change, and the public relations strategies she crafts reach an audience of well over 1 million people. “Whether you studied business or not, SI360 provides critical hands-on business education. The opportunity to build a tangible company from scratch, as a college freshman in a community of innovators, is priceless,” says Angela.
