Angela Sanchez is the author and illustrator of the picture book Scruffy and the Egg. During the onset of the Recession, Angela found herself and her family homeless during her last two years of high school. Since then Angela has held a deep regard for students who struggle for their educational rights while combating homelessness. Although she had never seen any of the campuses she applied to until she was admitted to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) as a freshman in 2009, Angela was inspired to continue higher educational outreach to students experiencing homelessness. Angela continues to provide motivational talks and mentorship for students across Los Angeles. She is on the board for the non-profit School on Wheels, Inc.
