As a child, Angela Mojica was bullied at school for being an immigrant. The classmates said hurtful things to her and treated her unkindly, just for not speaking English until her parents taught her not to let them affect her.

She learned how to accept her roots and to love herself. She even ventured into modeling, which she did with great pride as a Latina.

She lived in New York, where she met her husband who is Puerto Rican. They moved to New Hampshire after 9/11 looking for better opportunities.
