Angela is very passionate about cooking, having helped out in her parents' kitchen since she was a child. Her parents and grandparents had been known for their love for cooking, suggesting a family tradition. She used to enjoy experimenting in the kitchen and concocting all sorts of recipes, and carefully logged her actions "like a scientist in the laboratory." She has since lost her recipes and her logs in a house fire that drove them out of their old house.
Angela currently works at Amar's Restaurant as a server, though she longs to be able to work as a chef instead. Although her hours are long, she makes the most money out of everyone in her family thanks to Amar's generous rate of pay and the tips her customers give her.
