Meet the Author
Michelle McCombs is a proud HBCU graduate of Clark Atlanta University (CAU), having received her B.A. in Mass Communications in 2006. She wrote this book as a way to give a gift that keeps on giving. A native of the Bronx, New York, Michelle grew up self-motivated, and she kept believing and dreaming beyond her current circumstances. She is a Sr. Regional Director of Human Resources and spent her entire career focused on helping other people. She's been committed to cultivating talent by motivating and developing the next group of leaders by reinforcing servant leadership and simply doing her part to give back in underrepresented communities.
At CAU, Michelle was a part of various organizations and stayed in a rehearsal or practice for a group, club or team and it kept her very busy! She is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. Her positive experiences throughout her undergraduate HBCU life, her own personal joy of reading and her daughter’s love of children’s literature, inspired her to write this first book in the series of Angel’s Adventures. Her alma mater, Clark Atlanta University, was formed in 1988 by the consolidation of Clark College, which was founded in 1869, and Atlanta University, which was founded in 1865. Michelle’s goal is for this book to be a small piece of that tradition and expose our youth to HBCUs at an early age. These institutions served us well when no one else would.
As a result of Michelle's commitment to educate her own daughter, instill self-love and confidence she created iMatter Creations because black education matters. Furthermore, diversity and inclusion is vital to our communities. Follow @iMatterCreations you're going to love the next creation for our children coming soon. #iMatterCreations #MyHBCULife
During my childhood, I never knew about HBCUs and I’ve come across many people with similar experiences. I instantly fell in love with CAU and the Atlanta University Center when I stepped foot on campus! I had the pleasure of forming brotherly and sisterly relationships not only at my alma mater but also with individuals from Spelman, Morehouse, and Morris Brown College. This cross-campus experience shed even more light on our black culture, including our differences as well as our commonalities. Ultimately, we (people of color) are stronger together! Let's train up our children together and allow them to explore Panther University or any HBCU of your choice.
