Her maiden novel, VERNONIA, is a bestseller and she has another one cooking, which will be out in no time. Although, Angelica loves meeting and working with new people, her shy part gets the best of her sometimes. However, since becoming a public speaking Coach, she has come out of her shell and helps others through her lecture sessions to conquer their fears, just like she did. When she isn’t reading one of her numerous medical texts, one can find her reviewing or writing a research paper, editing a document on her laptop, singing or creating content on YouTube.
