Angela Marie Bukle was born May 13, 1991 in Montclair California. Angela was a studious woman that loved to dance and reach out to her community. Angela graduated from the School of Arts and Enterprise in Pomona, California where she learned lyrical interpretive and hiphop dance. Angela was a Political Science major and planned to continue to law school with the ultimate goal of being a congresswoman. One of Angela’s strengths was to unify people in the spirit of inclusion and through her work and activism on campus.

Angela was a student leader that really loved SF State, community and family. On the campus community she served as the Parliamentarian for the Fraternity Sorority Council, Coordinator for Black Student Union, VP for the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, and various leadership positions in the Black Sorority Fraternity Counsel. She also participated in the ASI Elections and the Annual ASI Women’s Conference in the Spring of 2012. Her passion for working with the youth led her to ASI Project Connect in assisting the program in motivating students to pursue a higher education. She made it a point to always try and help the youth in any way possible by participating in campus tours and panel discussions and performances. Off campus she participated in events such as March of Dimes Walk and AIDS Walk.

On June 19, 2012, Angela was just 21 years of age when she passed away suddenly in her Southern California family home. She had just started working as a dance teacher for a Summer School program at her former high school, where she was excited to teach students hiphop dance. Her passion to volunteer and empower youth was exemplary. In 2012, the ASI Board of Directors created the Angela Bukle Memorial Scholarship to honor her life and legacy.
