Isn’t it weird when you go on somebody’s website and the About section is all in third-person? I mean, who else is supposed to be writing this?

Angela M. Sanchez is me.

Phew! Got that out of the way.

I have written and published the children’s book, Scruffy and the Egg, and am currently working on my first young adult novel. I am most interested in urban fantasy and (as you can see) cartoons.

When I’m not drawing, I’m writing on issues related to social justice and access to higher education. My blog, Poverty2Professional, tracks my own journey from being a homeless teenager to navigating college.


I am a proud alumna of UCLA and a workshops, presentations and readings to family shelters, schools, libraries and other organizations. A few organizations that have hosted me include:

Subject areas for presentations and workshops I cover include:

  • Education for adults, caregivers, and educators on talking about homeless with children and teens.
  • Education for K-12 youth in understanding and/or dealing with homelessness
  • College access and financial aid for grades 6-8 and 9-12
  • Creative Writing for grades 8-12, and adults 18+

For booking or if you have questions of your own, please feel free to reach out to me here. I’m always excited to meet new people and help any way I can!


Below is a sample of some of the stuff I’ve written outside my blog.



These are interviews I’ve given for news media, articles, and the radio.
