Marie Angele Abanga
Marie Angele Abanga likes to describe herself as a “Jacqueline of several trades”. She is an everyday woman and mother with a zigzag profile. Let’s give it a try! She is an activist, an author, a coach, a consultant, a feminist, a lawyer, a lecturer, a Prince 2 project manager, a psychotherapist, a philanthropist, and above all a minister of the Gospel! She just loves to sum it up by saying she is a person of passions and a tale of talents. Her life’s journey has filled 8 books already and her three musketeers keep her busy at home. Marie lives in Douala - the economic capital of Cameroon.
Marie is also the founder and CEO of the association Hope for the Abused and Battered, and the Country Director of the Gabriel Bebonbechem Foundation for Epilepsy & Mental wellbeing. She is also an honorary member and a mentor with the Global Mental Health Peer having joined in 2018 as an executive representing Cameroon.
The plethora of life experiences she has lived through and learned from in 4 decades + of her life have equipped her with such an arsenal to facilitate group learning be it online or in person, and coach, train and motivate a hugely diverse range of persons. Marie is charismatic, dynamic, and full of life, going by her designed mantra of 3Ds: Determination; Discipline, and Dedication. This sums up her and her quest to be the best version of herself and impact others positively. She attributes all her wealth of knowledge to her conscientious attendance of both informal and formal schools. Let's see what she has so far gotten from formal school below ...
