Her Fight Record
Angela Lee is a mixed martial artist and the first women’s world champion in the ONE Championship organization. She was born in Singapore to parents of Chinese descent, but grew up in Hawaii. At age 18 she started her training as a mixed martial artist, quickly becoming one of the top female competitors, with nine wins and four losses. In 2016, she won gold at the Asian Indoor Martial Arts Games (AIMAG). Her professional career includes three fights for ONE Championship and two MMA bouts for DEEP JEWELS.
Her Career Ambitions
Angela is a founder and CEO of the successful startup, CoderBunnyz. She has always been interested in computers, math and science but after high school she started to question what she wanted to do with her life. She was drawn to entrepreneurship because it gave her the opportunity to create something from scratch. She loved that with entrepreneurship you could build anything that you dreamed up.
In 2007, she started CoderBunnyz at home with just an idea and a computer. The company began as a blog about teaching kids how to code when there weren’t many resources out there for parents looking for ways to introduce coding concepts at home with their children.
