Angela Zimmerling

Angela has written fiction, non-fiction, and poetry since she was able to compose words on the page. She studied creative writing at York University in Toronto, and then completed her studies – turning to journalism – in the Langara Journalism program.  As a child she spent a great deal of her time in the natural world, hiking, canoeing, and riding her horse. She was, and is, happiest in the company of non-human animals and the natural world. Our Mother Earth and the rights of all beings have always been her passion and have driven her to join countless marches, rallies, and acts of civil disobedience. In 2019 she and her husband, Eric Chong, founded Extinction Rebellion Fraser Valley which worked with many other Fraser Valley Environmental Groups including Bellingham Extinction Rebellion.
