DeAngela Cooks, M.A.
I’m DeAngela and the shape of my mosaic is a triangle. I’m a passionate public speaker, professional master of ceremonies, an acclaimed Diversity, Equity and Inclusion workshop facilitator and author. My superpower is utilizing my humor to help people reflect their sameness while appreciating their differences.
Hailing from Southern California, I weave my intersectional identities throughout my work with education, wit, and a splash of sarcasm. After knocking out my Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy and Religion, I decided to graduate with my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. I guess it's safe to say I'm a sap.
I have collaborated on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion initiatives with UC Davis, The County of Alameda, UCLA, NAACP, San Francisco Department of Probation, regional housing authorities, and the Pacific Center for Human Growth, just to name a few. I have also been a guest lecturer on the topic of multiculturalism for various graduate level psychology courses at JFK University.
During my down time, you can find me encouraging parents to stop counting their toddler's age in months and devising a scheme to become unidentifiable by my student loan providers.
