Angela M. Sanchez, ’13, MEd ’15

Angela M. Sanchez graduated from UCLA in 2013 with a B.A. in History and minors in English and Education Studies. Her departmental thesis was recognized with Highest Honors as well as “Best Women’s History” for its focus on female magicians and their representation in American Vaudeville. A member of College Honors, AAP, and the Alumni Scholars Club, Angela created two student groups, School on Wheels at UCLA and the UCLA magic club. She even taught a magic history class at UCLA’s Royce Hall. She received the Ehrlich Alumni Scholarship in 2009 and is also a recipient of the Dr. Ralph J. Bunche Alumni Scholarship, the Donald A. Strauss Foundation Scholarship, UCLA Volunteer Bruin Heroes Award, and the UCLA Distinguished Senior Award.

In addition to the financial assistance that the Ehrlich Alumni Scholarship provided, Angela feels extreme gratitude for the generations of inspiring, engaged alumnae that she has met through the scholarship. Assured that she can reach out to her fellow scholars and find warm and welcoming support, Angela believes the Ehrlich Scholars network is a glowing example of, “Bruins everywhere.”

In 2015, Angela completed her Master’s in Education focused in Student Affairs. Also at UCLA, she has received her California Teaching Credential and completed a business certificate through the Anderson School of Management.

Angela now works as a Program Analyst for the ECMC Foundation, which gives locally and nationally to college completion initiatives. Angela continues to volunteer with UCLA as well as provide motivational talks for students across Los Angeles.
