At the end of the year, Hmoodle is proud to finish out our 2012 monthly feature by introducing you to a sweet girl down south. Angelica Yang, who fittingly goes by Angel, is a model, accounting student, healthcare worker, promoter, and an aspirer of global and social change.
Hmoodle: Let me first congratulate you on your selection of the being the Hmoodle girl of the month of December.
Angelica: Thank you! I was eager to take on this opportunity when I was approached by Jabb. Didn’t know much, if anything, about Hmoodle so I did some research and I love what Hmoodle does! There should be more affiliations like Hmoodle, helping out the community and promoting individuals. I will definitely try to stay updated with Hmoodle.
Hmoodle: Can you give us a little background about yourself?
Angelica: Originally I’m from Fresno, California and moved to Georgia in 2003. Moved around a bit but pretty settled now that I’m on my own. From a HUGE, loving and supporting family which I am so blessed to have.
Hmoodle: Right now, you are an accounting student yet you work fulltime in the medical field. Where do you see your career taking you in the next few years?
Angelica: Well, both of my fields are total opposites but I feel that’s where I’ll have an advantage; something to fall back on if anything. In the near future I’ll of course be pursuing in my field of work, making a living, worrying about bills and what not. Though, hopefully my experience in the medical and business field will one day qualify me to be a volunteer for the Peace Corps.
Hmoodle: Outside of the professional workplace and the grind of school what are some of your favorite pastime activities?
Angelica: Of course if I’m not working or stressing over school work I’d just want to relax. Clubbing? Maybe. Getting drunk and stupid? It’s an option. Though, just staying in, in sweats has definitely made me a home bug. Couponing has also become something I’m trying to fit into my lifestyle. Saving lots of cash and getting stuff for free, it’s awesome!
Hmoodle: You mention integrating your passion for serving people with your future career. Why is it important for you to serve and give back to your community?
Angelica: Personally I feel everyone has a purpose, a reason for being put here. I feel my purpose is to make people happy. To bring happiness and some hope into their lives. It’s crazy how the simplest gestures and things you do can impact someone’s life so dramatically. If everyone were to just do something nice for someone once a day or hold back that one judgmental remark the world CAN be a better place.
Hmoodle: You have some experience in modeling. Would you say modeling is something you will continue to pursue in the future?
Angelica: I do have some experience in modeling though I don’t think it’ll be something that I will put a priority on. I started it off as a hobby, something to do to get my mind off some things and it just stuck. Now I only do it when requested or if I have an amazing idea for a theme. Not sure when modeling will be completely out of the picture but I suppose it will be when people start to really get tired of looking at me.
Hmoodle: With your extensive work in promotions for the nightlife scene, tell us what you think would constitute an unforgettable night out in Atlanta?
Angelica: If you’re in Atlanta you definitely have to take a stroll down Atlantic Station. There are countless restaurants and shops to stop by. During the day there’s always something going on whether it’s a festival or small show. And once night hits you can make some crazy memories club/bar hopping or catching a late movie all within a five mile radius!
Hmoodle: You have a fairly large family. Tell us more about why family is so important to you.
Angelica: Family is important to me because of course when one day all your “friends” leave you they’ll always be there. Whether they want to or not. Joke. Sometimes, when I do what I do, I only do it to impress my family. Make them proud of me and proud to say, “That’s my sister/daughter/cousin/etc.” Family will always be the hardest to impress and they’ll always be the best motivation.
Hmoodle: What is your take on guys and how does a guy set himself apart in your eyes?
Angelica: Guys, from my perspective, are nothing like females. They’re a lot less dimensional. Which has it pros and cons. More pros than cons. For a guy to set himself apart in my eyes firstly, he has to be well-educated or at least act like he is. Guys who “holler” at me like I’m some animal on a leash is a total embarrassment. We are both humans and we both speak the same language so there should be no reason for you to make yourself look stupid.. Secondly, personality and character plays major roles. Any guy can tell you what you want to hear and do what you want him to do but a guy who is compassionate, respectful and honest is worth so much more. Lastly, a guy who is able to put up with me and keep me happy is good enough for me. Not too much to ask, right?
Hmoodle: What would you consider to be your biggest fear?
Angelica: If you ask anyone that knows me they’ll tell you I’m afraid of EVERYTHING. The dark, heights, loud noises, scary movies, scary stories, any sorts of roller coasters, if it’s scary or pertaining to something even hinting scary don’t even dare speak of it around me. My biggest fear would probably be being alone. Not necessarily alone as in not married in the future or not having a partner just being alone in general. When I’m alone I feel super vulnerable and I’d hate to feel that way always.
Hmoodle: Tell us three things you would like to accomplish in your lifetime before all is said and done.
Angelica: First, it has always been a goal of mine to sky dive. Even though I’m afraid of heights and roller coasters, skydiving would definitely make up for all roller coasters I’ve skipped out on and I can proudly say I’ve done it. Secondly, being materialistic, purchasing an NSX, new or used, is a something I HAVE to accomplish. I remind myself almost every day. And lastly, I have to travel to India and volunteer some time. It’s the least I can do. Maybe one day if I win the lotto, or somehow come up with the finances, I’ll even be able to build shelters and schools, which would make many dreams, come true.
Hmoodle: Thank you for sharing a piece of yourself with us today. Do you have any last words for our readers?
Angelica: Thanks again for the consideration, it was a pleasure. I just want to remind everyone reading that a simple act of kindness can light up many worlds. This sounds corny but you should try it a few times, every smile you make is like a pound off your shoulders and a little light in both your lives..
Very well said from our Hmoodle girl of December. From all of us at Hmoodle, we want to thank Angel again for taking the time to allow our readers to get to know her a little bit more. I’m sure there’s a bright future in the Peace Corp for her.
