Imagine Angela in 2011.

17-(almost 18)-years-old, in a completely foreign environment, knowing absolutely no one (not a soul) and super dorky and weird. That was me. I moved to Fresno for school and was on my own for awhile. I had two roommates who became instant friends and I knew no one. Only a few memories from those
