Angela has been researching and implementing sisterhood and women’s empowerment strategies since she her earlier years as a college student and Big Sister at Princeton University.  She targets women and girls who are most vulnerable because she understands firsthand the impact that marginalization, stigmatization and stereotypes, lack of self-love and low self-esteem can have on the well-being and success trajectory of her sisters, particularly young girls.  Angela believes:

“Increasing consciousness and having access to critical resources are key to empowerment.
For women and girls, sisterhood must be the foundation of any empowerment movement.”
Angela D. Coleman

Angela’s efforts increase consciousness and sisterhood mentoring while promoting health, healing, critical thinking, and positive media.
