MEET OUR FOUNDER, ANGELA HALAN
I am often asked why I started Aboki Box. The simplest answer is, I love meeting and learning about people. As I begin to understand their history and culture, I develop an affinity, or love, for them. I feel connected. Hopefully, when it is time to say “see you later”, we part knowing we have each made a friend. One of my favorite things to do is learn about other cultures. There is a genuine interest and curiosity that drives me to understand how others “do life”. Through this discovery, I sometimes feel like I’ve opened a thoughtful gift when learning something interesting, new or different. I am particularly delighted when I realize a relatable moment as now there is commonality. I feel connected. Aboki Box is a natural extension of this love and curiosity, created to help children connect with their world and the people with whom they share it. I hope you enjoy discovering “new friends” as much as I do, or more.
