ANGELA REYNOLDS

Model and actress Angela Reynolds was born to a Japanese mother and a British father and started modeling at the age of 14. She spent 7 years living and working in London before returning to her hometown of Tokyo in 2006 where she has moved into a successful acting career as well as public speaking and volunteer work. Here she talks TWENTY6 through her own personal alphabet, which includes her upcoming visit to Rwanda for famine relief charity Table for Two to her most memorable moment in the Rajastani desert.

WHAT WERE YOUR AMBITIONS AND ASPIRATIONS
AT THE AGE OF 26?


26 was an interesting year. A three-month solo trip around India had inspired me to give city life a rest and I was doing a year and a half travelling around the States, Mexico, Israel, Greece, Costa Rica, and France following my godmother's yoga retreats, living in the elements, travelling, discovering, and adventuring. A lot of internal digging.
