Angela Cooper

Research and Communications Intern

Angela Cooper is finishing her last year at Royals Roads University where she is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Professional Communications. She is interested in Indigenous Perspective in Public Relations and Marketing. After completing her Diploma in Acting for Film and Television, Angela moved to Vancouver, and has flourished through reclaiming her culture through the arts. As an Indigenous Adoptee, she is interested in Indigenous women’s health and connecting these messages to her career as a performing artist. She is represented by Premier Talent and works for Dance West Network as a supportive alumnus for emerging BIPOC artists.

From this experience, Angela hopes to consult for Indigenous entrepreneurs who seek professional support through PR and marketing strategies that honour their culture, perspective, and values. She believes healthy Indigenous representation honours empowered, culturally connected, Indigenous self-governance.

When she is not studying, she is exploring avenues to continue connecting to her culture. Currently, she is learning beading and sewing Ribbon Skirts for new Indigenous mothers. She fills up on spending time with her puppy Scout, cooking and spending time in the outdoors with her partner.

When she finishes school, she looks forward to spending more time in dance classes, travelling, and exploring documentary filmmaking.
