March is National Women’s History Month. I decided to finish up this month honoring some exceptional women in Las Vegas. I chose my list of the “Most Inspirational Women in Las Vegas” based off of women I personally know, suggested by peers, or have created buzz in the city. Some women are in the nightlife industry (being honored at Blush Nightclub’s Queen of Clubs on Tuesday, April 5th) and others hold different positions in Las Vegas. However, the qualities they have in common are beauty, personality, kindness, and success. I wrote a brief bio for each woman and contacted them. I am grateful for each of them taking the time to provide my readers the information to get to know them a little bit better. The names listed below (in alphabetical order) will always reside in the history of Las Vegas.
Some may know Angel as Holly Madison’s best friend on E!’s Holly’s World, but most may not know she is a Las Vegas native. Being a single mom trying to achieve her dreams as a model and dancer, Angel recently admitted as being a survivor of a physical abusive relationship explaining her reasoning behind snapping on Jayde Nicole. She has a strong perseverance and a loyal heart to her friends. In a city, where some may be consumed by the idea of fame and change, Angel doesn’t lose herself or conform to what people expect. She stays true to herself and her friends. I personally have respect for anyone that stands by her peeps and stands up for herself.
Places You Lived other than Las Vegas: I lived in LA with Holly for about 4 months but other than that… Vegas is my HOME!
Favorite Vacation Spot: Mexico is my favorite vacation spot, specifically Playa Del Carmen!
The Best Thing about Your Job: The absolute best part about my job is I’m doing what I LOVE to do… what I’ve dreamed of doing since I was a little girl.
Role Model: My mom and Holly Madison are the most influential people in my life.Without them both I’d be beyond lost!
Favorite Place in Las Vegas: My mom and I frequent the Galleria Mall. Red Robin is a must while we’re there, but to be honest, if I had to choose one place I’d say just staying at home with my little man.
If You had the Power to make One Change to Las Vegas, What Would it be? I don’t think I would change anything about Las Vegas! I grew up here and it, along with the people in my life, have made me who I am today. The way Vegas is really gives you all aspects of life… then it’s up to you to make the right decisions. Sometimes we do, but when we don’t, we get to learn and grow from it. I love Vegas just the way it is!
