Angelica has been featured in film, television, and live theatre. Her starring role in the Emmy Award-nominated short-form series “Her Story” received Special Recognition at the GLAAD Media Awards, and her segment on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah was also honored with a GLAAD Award for Outstanding Talk Show Episode.
