In the early 90s, Angel Aviles boldly decided to pursue her dreams. She moved from New York City to Los Angeles to become an actress. Angel appeared in projects by Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, Michael Patrick King, and many others. In 1993, she landed a starring role in the cult classic, Mi Vida Loca. Angel's portrayal of “Sad Girl” has become an iconic representation of both strength and vulnerability in Chicano culture. Following her acting career, Angel experienced bouts of depression, anxiety, and panic attacks, causing Angel to learn more about mental, physical, and spiritual wellness. Today, she's proud to say that along the journey, she found herself, her sanity, and her purpose. These days, Angel is a transformational life coach, a motivational speaker, and a fighter for justice. She co-founded Living Firme, a lifestyle brand dedicated to destigmatizing poverty, encouraging communication, and empowering others who serve marginalized populations. Angel facilitates dynamic workshops across the country, where she helps hundreds of people connect with their inner chingona (badass). At Living Firme, she and her team provide safe spaces for people of all walks of life to learn and share experiences that foster creativity, promote unity, and inspire hope. When she is not at work, she is a mom, a traveler, a volunteer, a tech evangelist, a food justice advocate, a mentor, a soulmate, a seeker, and, most of all, genuinely human.Read more Read less
