Describing her involvement with Springtide, Angela says, “I’m grateful to be in a position where I can share the wealth of knowledge that Springtide provides with the people who need and want it most. I believe our young people are showing us a blueprint of how religion and spirituality may take shape in the future, and it’s exciting to be a part of documenting that and sharing it with the world.”
