National Leadership Program, Spring 2019
Angelique Uwabera is a Policy Fellow at RespectAbility’s National Leadership Program for Spring 2019. RespectAbility is a nonprofit organization fighting stigmas and advancing opportunities for and with people with disabilities. Uwabera is a senior with the School of International Service at American University, Washington, D.C. With a thematic focus in International Relations, particularly development, Uwabera is interested in exploring the inclusivity of people with disabilities in countries with limited resources.
Uwabera will participate in workshops and conferences catered toward self-development to not only enhance her deliverables during her time at RespectAbility but also grow from the opportunity of that exposure. She also will spend time researching on press release topics, writing op-eds and working closely with the Public Policy department to explore new ways of addressing employment difficulties faced by people with disabilities.
In her free time, Uwabera likes to talk with her family and catching up with friends. She also likes to listen to music or motivational speeches while arranging her room.
