Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are gods.
– Christopher Hitchens

On my mother’s side I am a descendant of Joseph Ball who was George Washington’s Uncle. And I was in the White House as a member of the press on the darkest day in our nation’s history- the day the Obamacare mandate was upheld by the Supreme Court.
Angelica Malik is a native of Southern California who relocated from Los Angeles to Denver to join the Independence Institute as a Development Manager.
She studied political science at the University of California, San Diego. After graduating, she did what every political science major does- she abandoned her dreams of going to law school and moved to DC to work for non-profits. While in DC, she interned for the National Journalism Center and participated in the Koch Internship program as a journalist for the Daily Caller. She then went on to work as a Communications Assistant for Public Notice in Arlington, Virginia. She has since worked mostly in Communications for firms in Dallas and San Francisco.
Angelica has written extensively on issues relating to the free market and was a featured blogger for Bankrupting America and Generation Opportunity.
When she isn’t reading Hayek or Mises, she can be found doing yoga, watching some indie band play live, checking her horoscope or hiking…she is from California after all. Her heroes are David Bowie and Antonin Scalia…so the first couple months in 2016 were tough for her. She is also a crazy cat lady, a craft beer snob, and a movie buff who believes there are two kinds of people in the world: Godfather people and Godfather II people.
