    Angela - Season 6



    AGE: 26
    JOB: Olympic Athlete
    HOME: Panorama City, California

    Biography
    Angela, 26, grew up in Los Angeles, California and Harper Woods, Michigan. She graduated cum laude with a degree in government from Harvard University, where she was an NCAA First Team Academic All-American.
    A star player on the U.S. Olympic Ice Hockey Team, Angela won a gold medal in 1998, a silver medal in 2002 and a bronze medal at the 2006 Olympics.

    Angela was the first woman non-goalie to play professional men's hockey in North America, playing with the Tulsa Oilers alongside her brother, Bill. As a result, Angela and Bill also earned a place in the Hockey Hall of Fame as the first brother-sister duo to play pro hockey together.

    At the 2005 World Championships, Angela helped the U.S. capture the gold by scoring the tournament-winning goal. She was also voted the USA Women's Player of the Year in 2003 and 2004, and was ranked the number one female hockey player in the world by "The Hockey News" in 2003.

    In addition to her extraordinary athletic accomplishments, Angela is the founder and president of a girl's hockey school. She also is the author of "Breaking the Ice," her inspirational autobiography, and the director of the New York Islanders' Project Hope, an organization that provides young Chinese athletes with access to educational opportunities.

    She is currently training for the 2007 World Championships with Team USA as well as the 2010 Olympics. When she has free time, Angela enjoys traveling, music, coaching hockey and volunteering. She says, "I should be the next Apprentice because I achieved success on a world platform as a result of my strong work ethic, determination and commitment--the same traits needed to succeed in business."

    I'm very impressed. She sounds wonderful. Why in the world does she want to work for the Donald?

    Wouldn't it be disappointing if she turned out to be the villain? Or the first one eliminated?

    Playing on a hockey team might give her an advantage, working with the other members, in her group.

    Or simply being a female in a male world.
