Angela is a 27-year-old independent artist, avid botanist, and budding researcher who lives in Minneapolis. She developed an interest in science during her bone marrow transplant as a teenager. This inspired her to complete a degree in biomedical engineering. In 2018, she received the Amy Winn & Christopher T. Byrd Award for Adults with FA. Her hope is to work in biomedical engineering research and to act as a bridge between patients and scientists.
