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 and to now holding down my first professional job. I am a proud alumna of UCLA and provide motivational talks for students throughout Los Angeles. Organizations that have hosted me include:
- School on Wheels, Inc.
- LA on Cloud 9
- Los Angeles Youth Network
- UCLA Scholarship Resource Center
- Upward Bound Los Angeles City College
- Los Angeles Public Library Student Smart Seminar
If you know students (middle school, high school, or college-level) who would like to learn more about getting to and through college 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!
