I must say that I believe my connection with Angel is a divine one. She was the speaker at my graduation from Woman University in 2016. Her words inspired me to do what was in heart to do. I would like to introduce to you and present to others a woman after God's heart. Meet Angel Charmaine Wright and discover how this God-fearing woman is making history. Author of "Speak with Chic: One woman. Ten truths.", its companion "God, I've Got Questions: 10 Bible Studies for Women Workbook" and "When I Met Him" is the mother of four fabulous humans, an inspirational conversationalist, author, and international educator. Angel has twenty years of experience as a teacher, coach, and advocate for underserved and diverse populations. She has worked within state, federal, and international arenas; forty years of life experiences and lessons lived and learned as a daughter, mother, wife, sister and friend that she says better prepared her for her life’s journey. Angel's story mirrors so many untold stories of little girls who survived and thrived despite growing up in the projects of Georgia. She survived childhood sexual abuse, life with a single-parent mom who battled drug addiction, and so much more. After marriage, motherhood, depression and divorce, Angel discovered her life's purpose while driving down Deans Bridge Road in Augusta, GA sobbing and asking God all the questions for which she had no answers. Angel says, God reassured her the plan He has for her is good and not disastrous. She realized at one of the lowest points in her life that her pain had purpose, and that she resolved to support individuals who have lost hope in God, life and themselves. Angel shares her personal story of resiliency and faith to help others overcome adversity by acknowledging, embracing and sharing their testimonies. Speak up Sis, LLC was created to help people overcome the hard stuff of life and live as overcomers.

Angel's favorite scripture is Revelation 12:11 which says, "And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die."
