You've Got Mail From New Jersey!

By: Angela Corley

Angela Lee Price is such a phenomenal woman. She is diligent and intellectual not to mention my first cousin. I'm so blessed that the Lord has given us the opportunity to connect and subsequently establish relationships with each other. It will take some time for us to get use to each other however great relationships build over years. I'm sure my uncle, Angela's father would be so proud of his daughter. I believe that before he passed he asked God for forgiveness.

What makes the relationship I have with my cousin Angela so special, is the fact that we share the same name. Believe it or not, my mother, Carolyn's middle name is also Angela. As soon as I met Angela I was impressed as I told everyone I work with who she is and what contributions she has made. It's a great feeling to have successful individuals in your family.

Far too often, African Americans separate themselves from one another which is such a set back for the African American race. If we get together and unite we would have the potential to be a powerful race.

One of my goals, among many, is to become an advocate of unity among African Americans. I also would like to work with juvenile delinquents to assist in diminishing the ideology that they cannot achieve and are products of their environments. Far too many people have proven that theory wrong including myself.

I just want to thank Angela for acknowledging the family and to keep up the good work.
