Health equity to me means that everyone regardless of their social, economic, and cultural identity should have the same opportunity to access quality care to live a healthy life style.

Angella hails from Kigali, Rwanda. Her commitment to the health equity movement is grounded in her belief in social justice and passion for empathetic community-based engagement. Angella is a systems thinker at her core and is dedicated to intersectional healthcare interventions that put patients at the center. Prior to joining GHC, Angella worked as a course facilitator at the African Leadership University, where she walked her students through problem-solving techniques and leadership content focus on human-centered designs. Additionally, she was an intern with URACA, a public health non-profit in Paris, France that gave her firsthand experience understanding the impact of discrimination on health outcomes. In her free time, she can be found at any Kigali coffee shop engrossed in a book or attending a live music event.
