    Hi Angalina,

    I was excited to find your website. I work at a school in Dorchester, Ma with at risk inner city youth who all have emotional/behavioral disorders. Many of them are affiliated with gangs. What kind of programs// talks do you offer?
    Thank you so much for your time

    1. Hi. Thank you for reaching out to me. I tailor my presentations based on whom I am speaking with. You can contact me by my email angaliabianca2u @yahoo.com I would be more than happy to discuss this with you further as I have dedicated my life to at risk youth and young adults. You can google my full name to get a better insight of my experience of my own life and the work that I do now. Thanks again

    Wow, I didn’t know your testimony until reading about it on your website. I can relate to a lot of your story (gang involvement and drug addiction) and thank God I decided to turn my life around when I did. You are an inspiration to me and to many other young people and I will be forever grateful for the help you provided me in being able to help other at-risk youth here in Chicago. So glad I found you on LinkedIn so I could re-connect!
