August 2018 – To All
The IMF in Washington, D.C. just gave Haiti a $96M loan on the condition that they improve collection of taxes and reduce fuel subsidies, using the savings to invest in infrastructure, eduction, health, and social services. I know this sound great to many of you, however it’s not. The Haitian citizens protested and ransacked the city, eventually causing their Prime Minister to resign. Different Approach: Provide a $96m loan to directly fund infrastructure, new schools, and medical/social service centers. This creates JOB’s, which will allow Haitians to pay their taxes and pay full price for fuel without jeopardizing their livelihood. YOD IS IN WASHINGTON, D.C. TO HELP MAKE PROGRAMS BETTER.

April 2018 – To my Supporters
I’ve been  accepted into the PhD program for Political Science at Howard University in Washington, D.C. This was the leap I was looking to take in order to help those in need using my programs that reduce poverty through entrepreneurship. In D.C. I can make long-lasting change working to help agencies like World Bank, USAID, the U.N., large non-profits, and social entrepreneurs. Join me by supporting my continued programs in Kenya and to bring the ArtBoyz to full sustainability from the slums of Nairobi. A Container Village is the goal.

Yes!!! I will help you in any way I can… gladly.   God decided you weren’t done with these Boyz  yet… right?

Dear Angela, It is with mixed emotions that I acknowledge  having read your final minutes as you and YOD embark on hiatus…I feel sadness because of the void that will be left by your temporarily shutting down projects via YOD. I feel joy that you  will be pursing a new avenue and perhaps a larger stage for your humanitarian expressions. With your inner strength, kindness,commitment and compassion I know that you will achieve success and continue to serve humanity in your every endeavor. It has been with great pride and pleasure that I have served YOD as a board member and I am ever grateful for the opportunity. I am looking forward to working with you in future humane outreaches.

Finished both of your books…. You are a hoot! What I enjoyed so much while reading your books was your delight in the small nudges and constant reminders in life of the ubiquitous presence of God. And your trust and surrender in situations is a path for me to emulate. The feel of your books is tremendous sweetness. The Seva you give to the world is beautiful. I hope to join you on a retreat sometime/somewhere. Your travel style is a good fit!

Really good writing-wise woman. I’m not even done with this book yet but I REALLY like her writing style and her intelligence and her straight-forward attitude. Her story is engaging without being self-serving. She is a woman to keep an eye on-someone who’s really doing good work for the right reasons. There is a magical or multidimensional quality to this book that’s hard to explain, but I REALLY like the “vibe”. I’ve had a couple of epiphanies and I’m not even half way done.
I look forward to her future books.

Loved this book. This book is as straight forward as it gets. She gives it too you in a user friendly manner. She’s a no messing girl with a lot to teach and a lot to offer to the spiritual world. It’s good to hear from someone that walks the walk and not just talk and talk. She’s a doer in every sense of the word. This book is for the beginner or the advanced student. You will love it’s straight talking, no nonsense approach to what many feel is a very difficult subject to get to grips with. You won’t put it down once you read the opening page.

Thanks Sis for helping me maintain my calm through your book. You really say it all; from what we learned growing up about God & positive thinking, and letting stress go through the breath and the stretches. You said it all in another language and taught us how to use everything to its Maximum. I “get you” now.
