Angela Madera is a writer and blogger living in Chicago, IL. She moved back in with her parents of her own accord at the age of 27, and it was in that moment that Angela decided to pursue the career she had always wanted to pursue – writing. Currently, Angela enjoys writing topical commentary for her blog, and contributes material for Elite Daily and You Queen.
Life, Work, Inspiration, Humor, Politics
My blog serves two purposes. The first purpose is to pursue my writing career and gain exposure. The second is much more fun for me, because I really get to be myself. My character is the collective response to millennial criticisms by the media and baby boomers. I’m unapologetic when I say that I enjoy sitting on my ass, not paying rent, and being enabled. Instead of responding defensively as I know many millennials have done, I am invigorated by the criticisms. They prophesied me, and now I’m here.
FACTS ABOUT ANGELA MADERA
What is something you’ve always wanted to try but have been too scared to?
Standup comedy as my millennial character. I know what I want to say, I just need to get over the fear, practice my act, and just do it. I’ll get there, some day!
What trajectory are you hoping to push yourself onto? Where do you want to head?
I know I want to do something with writing because I love what I do with fact-based opinion pieces. Naturally I think that takes me to commentary, expressing my opinions on a public forum, like when I see the women on “Outnumbered” on Fox or the panel on “Real Time with Bill Maher.” That’s where I want to be.
What’s your favorite 90s memory?
I have narrowed it down to two so I’m going to say them both. I loved playing in groceries stores with my sister when we were young and taking the coupons from those funny beeping machines in the middle of the aisle and we would race who could get the most coupons. The second is playing hide and go seek in department stores with my sister and we would hide in the clothing racks while our mami shopped. Great times.
