Her personal story is marked by enduring two decades of hardship, marked by domestic violence and dysfunction, both in her youth and adulthood. These painful experiences have fueled her unwavering passion to make a difference.

Growing up amidst domestic violence and dysfunction profoundly impacted Angel, leaving a lasting imprint on her heart.

Angel's empathy for the struggles faced by today's youth fuels her work. She recognizes their vulnerabilities and challenges, having experienced adversity herself. Her motivation is to empower young people with the tools they need to navigate life's obstacles while nurturing their resilience, self-esteem, and sense of purpose. She's also committed to promoting mental awareness, self-love, and self-care.

For Angel, empowerment is more than a concept; it's a guiding principle and a beacon of hope. As an "overcomer" herself, she understands the profound impact of empowerment on individuals and communities. This commitment to empowerment is at the core of her mission with Divine Services & Foundations, Inc. (DSF, Inc.), offering a tangible and realistic path to healing and transformation for the youth and adults she serves.
