Angela MorganAngela works for UAB Health System as a database administrator. Her prior education includes B.S. Chemistry and M.S. Computer Science degrees, both from Mississippi State University. Outside of her professional life Angela is passionate about exploring and mapping caves – it’s an activity that has taken her many places around the world over the past 35 years – and has long had an interest in anthropology related to this pursuit. As she moves into the next phase of her life, Angela sees the Anthropology of Peace and Human Rights program as a way to integrate her varied interests and real-world experiences, finding the connections that will tie her ideas together with the ideas of others to reach a greater understanding of the nature of humans in relation to peace and human rights. She believes that, even though we live in a time of unprecedented freedoms, there is still much work to be done, and our freedoms and progress on human rights are being threatened by the rise of authoritarian governments at home and abroad. Currently her career interests lean toward human rights organizations and NGOs. As a woman she naturally has a special interest in women's rights, but is a champion of all human rights, everywhere.
