"If you want to grow personally and professionally, be open and willing to share with others."
-Angela-

As a graduate in Public Relations and Media Arts from Wayne State University, I am a motivated and highly committed individual who aims to collaborate and deliver great results. My interests range from online marketing, event management, public relations, new media and technologies, web and print design as well as videography.

A little bit about me:
I was born and grew up in France in a little town in the French Alps called Thonon-les-Bains. My parents are from a small group of islands called Cape-Verde, which has a special place in my heart. The archipelago is located on the west side of Africa, about 300 miles from Senegal. I consider myself very lucky to have been able to grow up with two cultures which have made me very open-minded and eager to learn more about the world that surrounds us.

After graduating in France with a B.T.S. in Communication des Entreprises in 2007, I packed my bags and moved to the United States, landing in Detroit. Coming to this country without my family was a BIG change, but something inside me, I like to think of it as destiny, attracted me here. In 2010, I graduated with a Bachelors in Public Relations and decided to further my education with a Masters in Communications, Media Arts, learning video production, and a Certificate in Communication and New Media.

I have many interests, spanning from online marketing to social behavioral research which is why I have learned as much as I can via internships, volunteering opportunities, books and online videos. In today's competitive climate, I wanted to become invaluable and distinguish myself from my peers. The various positions I’ve held have allowed me to gain so much knowledge, which is truly invaluable to the contribution I am now able to offer. Lastly, as you probably have guessed, I fluently speak French, Cape Verdean (Creole Portuguese), Portuguese and English. I am currently working on improving my Spanish and hope to become fluent in the near future…

Thank you for your time, I hope you’ve enjoyed learning a little about me and please don’t hesitate to contact me for further inquiries.

Videography
I fell in love with videography in 2010 while I was working on my MA in Media Arts/Production. The ability to capture moments and tell a story is very special ability. One of my most rewarding project was creating the videography for the moving exposition Con/Vida, Popular Arts of the Americas..
