I would love to play a part in someone’s story and make a difference in their lives, as well as the mental health profession as a whole.”

PG (parental guidance) rating: Her family makes her proud because they are always therefor each other. “My mom and dad have definitely been my #1 inspiration throughout my life.

They have both been my stronghold in times of weakness, they encourage me to never give up, and I could not be more grateful for their love and support.”

parents’ perspective: Her parents, Maria Adela Ansaldi and Gerardo Gonzalez, shared the thing they admire most about Angeles is her smile. She has a joyful, bubbly personality and is resilient. They shared, “She is very smart and always gives her best effort. She can be feeling down but she still manages to cheer up everybody around her. She has her opinion about things and is not shy about sharing them with others. She is a devout Catholic, and she takes her religion seriously but happily.”

parent-to-parent: “Take time to be with their kids, ideally teach by example, be a source of encouragement and reassurance. And never be afraid of saying (as a parent) ‘I was wrong, I am sorry.’”
