"My mental health is the most important thing.…I'm going to make sure I'm okay before anything," Angel said in a press conference. "I want people to realize that I'm not just an athlete, I'm a human. I go through things. We all go through things."




Angel starts her day early, meditating first thing when she wakes up at  4 a.m. Her routine is sitting on a carpet in the living room, taking deep breaths, and chanting: "Let's get through today."

Work Ethic and Determination

Even though she has another year of college eligibility, Angel recently revealed she would be entering the WNBA draft. "I want to start at the bottom again," she says. "I want to be a rookie again and build myself back up; I want to be knocked down and learn and grow at the next level," she told Vogue.  "I'll be working with grown women," she says. "I'll be working with women that have kids, women that have a family to feed. I'm going to have to work my butt off every single day and grind. And who wouldn't want that? I don't want anything in my life to be easy."
