Challenge Day on MTV: If You Really Knew Me


If You Really Knew Me
Premiered July 20th @ 11pm on MTV

In high school, there are the students who rule the school -- like jocks, cheerleaders, and the popular kids -- and the ones who get picked on -- like nerds, emos, and outcasts. That's just high school, right? But what if you could change that?

Angela Aguilar

Life Experience:

Angela Aguilar was born and raised in San Diego, California. The eldest daughter of immigrant parents, she was taught from an early age the importance of love, family and education. Angela was the first person in her family to graduate from college in the United States, earning her Bachelors in Sociology with an emphasis in Inequalities (specifically race and gender) from San Diego State University.

In life experiences, her main goal has always been the search for the ways that we are all connected and the adventures that go along with living life fully. This has led to a diverse range of work and interests including the non-profit sector (Survivors of Torture, International, Move San Diego); camp counselor for middle and high school youth; Hollywood in Film and Television Development; Director of Marketing and Admissions for a nursing and rehabilitation facility, as well as writing and releasing two music albums.

In all of these worlds, she has learned that people are so much more the same than they are different. The desire to share that love and connection is what motivates Angela to create change in the world. "I am a woman, a Challenge Day Leader, a writer, a daughter, a goofy kid, a singer and a friend. But more so than that, my purpose is to remind us that we are all little bits and pieces of everything - and because of that ANYTHING is possible."

If you really knew me, you would know…

  • The highest thing that I can aspire to be is just like my mom and my grandma.
  • I love being part of an organization full of passionate, incredible, funny, loving and diverse world changers. As different as we all are, our shared vision of how we can all make the world better makes me excited to go to work every day.
  • One of my biggest fears is not being "enough". Every day I try to remind myself that if I walk through this world loving other people, I have to love me first.
  • I love being Filipino. I am constantly learning and relearning what my culture means to me and the ways that I walk in between worlds.
  • I'm the oldest of three girls and I love being their "Ate" (big sister). They are my heart and watching them grow into the young women they are today and recognizing my part in it is one of the biggest joys of my life.
  • I seriously miss Southern Californian Mexican food so much it hurts sometimes.
  • You'd know that I am driven to fully express myself, always. To do that, I'm the most comfortable in relaying my personal truths, whether that be in conversation, on a written page of my own words, or in a sung note in a still room.
  • I really, really love cardigans.
