Reflecting on her time with START, Angela said, "My time with START has exceeded my expectations on multiple levels: personal growth, professional experience and learning, and community building. The opportunity to work with the Gates Foundation on 5+ research and policy projects over one year has been an incredible privilege, especially when thinking about the potential impact of these projects. The experience gained from collaborating with such intelligent, caring, and passionate individuals—on the faculty, staff, and on the student sides has been unmatched."

Angela is currently a Program Manager, Innovation at the Allen Institute.
