FAU Wilkes Honors College alumna, Angie Joseph, is among 60 highly accomplished artists selected to take part in the Global Leadership Program – an Ivy-League curated educational opportunity for impact-focused community changemakers. Joseph, who concentrated on T ransdisciplinary Visual Arts and Mathematics , credits the unique and fully immersive interdisciplinary learning environment WHC provides students for her drive in arts entrepreneurship.
"When I came to FAU, I had intended on pursuing an education that would guide me in an art-centered, nonprofit organizational management role," said Joseph. "It was the support, guidance and passion for student success from WHC faculty that helped build my confidence to pursue art and, essentially, be empowered to take part in the Global Leaders Program," said Joseph.
Joseph is an alumna of the FAU Kelly/Strul Emerging Scholar Program , graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences in Spring 2021. She plans to continue pursuing a career in art in a nonprofit but will remain dedicated to expressing her creativity through her illustrations.
