The students spoke about Angela and the subject she spoke on for weeks.- Chad Brawley, Executive Director of the Houston Community Center for the Performing and Visual Arts

Thank you for one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever encountered in a classroom. Your ability to inspire every student in your classroom to participate was an experience I will remember throughout my future. You showed me that if I set a goal for myself, I can accomplish anything. Your abilities for inspiring those around you have no boundaries nor have any handicaps.- Benjamin D., Student at Lone Star College
