It takes more than a notion to be rare. Stepping outside of the box of normalcy is a gift in itself and the true definition of someone determined to rise and shine. She's a President, CEO, journalist, writer, editor, photographer, world traveler, poet, and a trailblazer within the writing community. Saying she is a force to be reckoned with is putting it mildly. I am inspired by her work, in awe of her grace, and honored to present to you, Angela P. Moore!
◆ How are you doing on this amazing day?
I am fine considering we are going on two years in this pandemic.
◆ Writers are known for having thoughts at any given time. When do you have your best ideas?
Usually, late at night I do a lot of thinking. You know when it's quite and no distractions, I can focus better.
◆ If you had to give a title to the blueprint of your life, what would it be called?
Good question! I have to think about this one... Maybe it should be titled, “A Place Called Love"
◆ Do you remember the first time you brought ink to paper?
Yes, I do. As a kid, I loved to read and write. I also remember being on a television show in Pensacola, Florida, because I read so well. Growing up, I had my own little library. I loved going to the library to check out books, and we had a mobile library that came to our neighborhood. How cool was that? I always loved reading and English classes were my favorite. I enjoyed writing essays in class. In college, I majored in Journalism and Photography, so that's when I really got serious and put ink to paper. My first professional experience was the college newspaper, “The FAMUAN”! I remember writing editorials on Jesse Jackson running for President, and writing stories on everything happening on campus, from renovations on campus, new businesses in the area, voting, new policies, to photographing the football games on Saturdays. I was also a photographer for the college newspaper. So, I wrote my stories and provided photos to go with my stories.
