Angel Nieva – Executive Assistant

Hello! My name is Angel Nieva and I am the Client Services Clerk at Planet Hope Christian Enterprising for the summer. One of my greatest passions is helping others by listening to them and being empathetic and understanding. I also love to sing, write music, practice martial arts, read books, and write stories. 

I am a student at the University of Calgary and my main field of study is Sociology with a minor in Philosophy. I have background experience working with lots of non-profit organizations, mostly as a volunteer, like Children’s Wish Foundation and Lion’s Eyeglasses. I am also a close member of my church and I regularly volunteer my services to them by organizing events, church lessons, song selection, and anything involving PowerPoint (we all know how important those slides are haha). I look forward to working with you on your project and would love to connect with you by contacting the links below.

Emmy McKirgan – Writing Specialist

I am so excited to write for Planet Hope again! Previously as a volunteer, I learned so many valuable skills—however, the takeaway from my time: working with the best group of people. A group of people who encourage, help and keep each other accountable.
I am a happily married mother of 3 “adult” children. To me, they are still kids! I enjoy writing and reading. I love to be out in nature and see God’s unique creation! It often takes my breath away to realize we are a part of it.
It’s not all unicorns and rainbows. I want to write about the struggles also. I struggle with mental health issues and physical pain exacerbated by a car accident -this has become my new normal.
I am still struggling with the challenges daily, grieving the person I was or the things I could do. I want to be honest in what I write. I feel like I have had many traumas in life and joys that I can share with others! Just remember: you are not alone! Regardless if you are in the darkest valley or on the highest mountaintop! That’s the lie that we often believe when we struggle!
