Inga Angelutsa was born in a small village in Moldova just prior to the collapse of the Soviet Union. Due to the chaos in her country, Inga went to school in Romania, where she was selected to play for the junior national volleyball team. When only eleven years old, one of her poems was selected by a newspaper for publication. She completed her education in a now independent Moldova where she studied Computer Science at University. Using her IT expertise and athletic ability Inga spent her early twenties working for a government agency. Increasingly restless and ever more curious about other countries, she travelled through Europe with spells of work in France and Italy. With her love of film, art and music she found herself drawn to London. Being resourceful, enthusiastic and energetic she was soon to be working as a data scientist at one of Europe’s largest international organizations. Perhaps it was finding a real sense of identity, in a city she loves, that led her back to her passion for writing and drawing?
