About Angela Puma

Programs Fellow

Angela Puma was born in Yaracuy, Venezuela, where she lived for fifteen years before moving to Miami, Florida. She moved by herself at a very young age, leaving her family in Venezuela to pursue her studies in the United States. After attending Miami Dade College, Angela discovered her passion for international law and human rights. Therefore, she decided to major in International Relations and minor in Political Science. During her time in College, Angela was selected as Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society Chapter President where she contributed to several events on and outside campus, as well as several organizations. She was involved in the creation of “The Food drive for Venezuela” event, which collected five tons of food and medicine that were well-distributed in the hospitals and streets of Venezuela. Angela was part of many fundraisers and volunteering activities in her local community. She was ultimately selected as recipient of the All-Florida Academic Team Award for her leadership and service contributions. During her last semester at Florida International University, Angela interned for Saleh & Associates Attorneys at Law in Miami. In her personal time, she enjoys reading about most important issues that countries are facing today. Angela believes that all the young leaders have the power to be part of creating a better society for next generations.
