About Sharon Angel (FB)

Sharon Angel is a dynamic, young leader and a voice for this generation. Sharon’s passion lies in bridging societal divides between people of different status, faith, caste, race, age and gender. Her goal is to give voice to those who are destitute and faced by oppression, and help facilitate their journey toward rehabilitation, employment and leadership through her work in media and justice. Sharon is the Trustee of SEESHA (www.seesha.org), a non-governmental organization in India that helps the underprivileged communities in areas of health, education, sanitation and environment.

Growing up immersed in media, Sharon has studied and worked with media organizations around the world to effectively take her message to a global audience. As a Bachelor in Broadcast Communication, graduate of MFA in Cinema-Television, and producer of several programs at her job with a broadcast network, she empowers other women media advocates with technical skills to produce their own show. Sharon speaks around the world, teaches and trains leaders on how they can effectively use video and social media to deliver their message on a visual platform.

The heart of Sharon’s passion lies with her video project, “Random Thoughts”. The YouTube series started in 2013 and shares the truly random thoughts that she has on things she encounters in her life, travels, work and leisure. Today, she has a variety of videos on difficult subjects starting from domestic violence, religious freedom, peaceful relationships, child labor, disaster relief, mental health to everyday topics like having a bad day, the meaning of love and spending. Her channel encourages people to open up and share their experiences on matters that tear people apart, so that Sharon can do her part in inspiring a new perspective for peace, bridging the gap and stimulating reconciliation. Subscribers also get a sneak peek into her life through her vlogs, as she showcases some of her favorite things to do while she travels and reminisces about growing up in India.

Sharon is now an entrepreneur and runs her own video production company, helping organizations and leaders produce video and social media content around the world.

In a recent interview, Sharon talked about her company, A North Production: “As a company, we help corporate leaders and businesses establish an online presence. Most people are intimidated of social media and their company’s online competition. We help individuals and brands bring their vision to action with ease, and reach their intended audience. We are known for video production, social media strategy, content creation, marketing and branding.”

“Our business focuses not only on taking away the intimidation that media and the internet world brings to clients but has a message behind every story, ultimately  empowering women on the other side of the world. We are here to serve the intellectual and the outcast, hoping to bridge the gap between two widely different groups of people.”
