About Angie

separator

Angie Chirino is a child-advocate, former educator and recognized songwriter from South Florida.

As the eldest daughter of Cuban musician, composer and producer Willy Chirino, Angie lived a life surrounded by music and entertainment, so it was only natural that her professional career began in this field as a performer herself. She went on to become a songwriter, penning hits for some of the most recognized names in the Latin music industry such as Gloria Estefan, Marc Anthony and Celia Cruz. Her work achieved notable Billboard success and in 2000, Angie was awarded the “Song of the Year” Latin Grammy. However, as a single mom, she felt it was important to focus on raising her daughter and serving a greater purpose. She walked away from her successful entertainment career and started working with special needs children as a paraprofessional with Miami-Dade County Public Schools, a position she held for eleven years.

In 2016, Angie joined the staff at Voices For Children Foundation, an organization that serves children in foster care in Miami Dade County through the Guardian ad Litem program. Her work involves stewarding donors, speaking publicly about the organization and creating content to raise awareness and engage the public in order to help this vulnerable population. More importantly, she is herself a volunteer Guardian ad Litem, working with children going through the dependency process and other youth at risk. She mentors young women who are survivors of human trafficking and connects them with members of the community who can make a difference in their lives by providing opportunities that allow them to see a glimpse of what they might be able to accomplish with hard work, determination and a helping hand. Through these experiences she hopes to empower them to rise above their circumstances and pursue their dreams.

Angie serves as an Advisory Board Member for the Cuban Democratic Directorate, an organization which promotes democracy and human rights. She also serves on the Police/Citizen’s Advisory Committee for the City of Miami Beach. Angie obtained her B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies from Florida International University and will complete her MBA in December 2019.
