She began her college education in 2010 at the University of Southern California where she studied Global Health.

She is passionate about organizations that aid people in unfortunate situations, and hopes to one day return to get her Master’s and work in the public sector.
Angels has been a central point in her life for years, and she is excited about the new, fresh direction Angels is moving towards.
