        Our Lady Queen of Angels Chapter is blessed to bring you Angela Perez Baraquio.  Angela Perez Baraquio, also known as “Angie”, has been a light to thousands of people. As the eighth of ten children, Angie was born of Catholic Filipino immigrants who traveled to America in search of a better life for their family. Angie would grow up in Hawai'i to win the prestigious titles of Miss Hawai’i 2000 and Miss America 2001, making history as the first Asian-American woman, the only-Filipina, and only teacher to win in the pageant’s history. She was also appointed to President George W. Bush’s Council on Service and Civic Participation.

Her Miss America title allowed Angie to travel all over the country to inspire others with her personal story of faith, adversity, triumph, tragedy and hope. She is recognized as an outstanding role model for young women struggling to find identity and meaning. Angie also has a message for strong families and support for human life. “I am a teacher, first” as Angie has been an elementary school teacher and is passionate about education. She is now an author of “Amazing Win, Amazing Loss: Miss America Living Happily, Even After” that shares her own personal triumphs and the loss of her younger brother to suicide in 2006. She has become a wife, mother of four, classroom teacher, TV Host, and business owner. Through it all, her story remains one of not giving up and leaning on your faith in good times and bad. She is truly inspiring and a faith-filled role model for girls, teens, and young women. Come and see this woman of faith and how God continues to work through her for His children.
