Angela Sanwoolu

Your name:  Angela Sanwoolu

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Nigeria and a Master of Science in Psychology from the UK.  After that, I worked in the Middle East supporting children with learning disabilities for 4 years.  I also have experience in supporting families with children on the autistic spectrum who have behavioral challenges.  Since I arrived in Canada, I have spent time being with my husband and three sons.  I have also served in various charity organizations in various capacities.

What inspires you?

I am inspired by the similarities human beings have regardless of their class, race, culture or religion. While these play a role, I find that at the heart of every person, there are things we all desire, challenges we face and hopes we all cling to. The capacity we have to love, hope, persevere, adapt to changes, and be resilient is truly awe inspiring.  Knowing that I possess the ability to step into another person’s world, share in it and bring guidance is what inspires me each day.

What are your proudest accomplishments?

My proudest accomplishment is being a mother to my three sons.  They are my pride and joy and I feel honored that I get to be their mother. in addition, my experiences with living in many cultures across Africa, Asia and Europe make me feel like I can relate to almost anyone.

What are your Hobbies and Interests?

 I have many interests. I enjoy baking and gourmet cooking.  I express my creativity by making celebration cakes and I regularly have friends over to try out my most recent gourmet adventure. I love a good cup of tea. I enjoy sharing teas with friends or all by myself, curled up with a good book. My plants bring me a lot of joy and a feeling of serenity so I garden year round. Finally, I love to travel and I’m the sort of traveller who likes to go off the beaten path and have an adventure.
