“There are realities we all share, regardless of our nationality, language, or individual tastes. As we need food, so do we need emotional nourishment: love, kindness, appreciation, and support from others.”

— Goswami Kriyananda

Meet Angelica

“Hi! I’m Angelica!

Well, my little boy says I’m a cool mom. I have two children, ages 7 and 13, and I consider myself a good mother. A bit of me, I was born in Oaxaca, Mexico and I have been in Los Angeles for 7 years. I moved here to be closer to my family and in search of better opportunities. I’ve been working at McDonalds for 2 years and doing everything they ask me to do.

I like to go to the park for walks and be in nature. I don’t have a favorite food, but my kids really like it when I cook spaghetti.

While going to Mario’s Brothers next door, I saw Gaia’s Gift and asked what was happening. I chose to help because I like to show appreciation. If you need help, I am willing to help.”
