Audra Angelique, GCU Founder

is “a powerhouse of creativity” with a “creative mind that knows no bound”.

It’s both resonate & jarring to hear words like this all your life (and actually believe them yourself). In my life I have been and am blessed to be able to attract and work with, from my perspective, some of the most powerfully creative and intelligent human beings on this planet (so far). I believe everyone is creator with unique gifts and purpose.

I dedicate my life to creating a legacy that leaves a positive imprint on humanity, leading by example, so we can continuously shift this world forward for the betterment of every living being (as well as all else). GCU is one way I believe I will be able to accomplish this.

CLEARLY NOT ALONE. We need each other!

UNITY ABOVE ALL ELSE!!!
