Introducing Connecting Angels Young Ambassador: Minella Majenu
Minella Majenu, was born and raised in the North-West Region of Cameroon. She attended St Bede’s Secondary School and St Augustine’s High School, where her deep sense of service and empathy was birthed. She started out as a Choir/Music prefect in Saint Bede’s and she has not stopped singing since then.
Minella moved to the US after graduating from High School, to pursue a higher education. This path led to a Bachelor and Master’s Degree in Petroleum Geology from Texas A&M and University of Arkansas, respectively. She is currently pursuing a medical degree. Her hobbies are: Singing (to no-one’s surprise), cooking, reading, traveling and participating in various volunteer activities at her church and local shelters.
She believes education is a fundamental and basic right that should be rendered to all, especially the children – tomorrow’s leaders. Over the last couple of years, she has been working with Hope4Children Cameroon, a US-based non-profit organization, to foster education for underprivileged children – especially girls – in the underserved rural regions of West Cameroon. This led to her being crowned as Miss Cameroon USA 2017-2018.
“With the same passion and empathy, I am honored to be Goodwill Ambassador for Connecting Angels. I look forward to making a difference in the lives of the under privileged and underserved, beginning with Feeding the Homeless project in Houston and beyond.” – Minella M.
Connecting Angels is proud to welcome this dynamic and intelligent young ambassador, who will champion the cause for the homeless in Houston, TX, in who, in the wake of the devastating Hurricane Harvey that left many homeless, became an even greater at-risk population. She plans to feed the homeless on the last Saturday of every month, under the Connecting Angels Pantry program. Please wish Minella well during her tenure as Ambassador, helping to create a more peaceful society through her simple act of kindness for the homeless.
