Angel Luis Vega FOR US CONGRESS

Ángel Luis Vega was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, a Caribbean island territory of the USA. He knows first-hand what coming from a hard-working family and humble beginnings is like, his mother Mayra served as a social worker for the PR Government for 30 years. His father, Ángel Luis Vega Sr. worked as a head pharmacist for the United States Army at Garrison - Fort Buchanan, he was a Gulf War Veteran and retired as an SFC from the United States Army. His grandmother was an executive officer for the DOL and his grandfather is a Korean War United States Army Veteran.  

 

Vega is married to Ideneth, they are parents of Victoria, 6 years old, and Matthew, 3 years old, live in Katy, Texas with their bernedoodle, Sawyer.

 

Growing up his childhood was difficult, his parents divorced when he was 5 years old. For years his mother struggled to pay the bills, having to choose between paying the rent or putting food on the table. Working full time as a social worker and part-time during nights in retail.

 

When he was 11 years old, they had to move in with his great-grandparents, he slept in the living room on a small sofa while his mom was in the basement. He remembers vividly how his mom would always say “this is just a season it’s not permanent”. Her actions and resilience taught him the real importance of life, to be humble, honest, that integrity is his best presentation card, and to serve others is life’s purpose. She taught him that no matter how poor they were, there were people in more need than them. A couple of years later, they moved out of her grandparents’ home. When Vega was 14, his father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and he help his father during the transition and process. These life experiences changed how he dealt with difficulties, and it endured him immensely. 

 

He used what he learned in his childhood, to motivate himself and push forward, he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Inter-American University while working full-time at Popular Inc. He then went on to earn his Master’s degree in Management & Leadership from Webster University. 

 

Vega is an outsider in politics, bringing over 20 years in the workforce in the private sector, as a small business owner, and in the non-profit industry. He is passionate about personal and professional development, the journey guided him to the point where he had the opportunity to publish his first book in 2013. "Sé el Líder de Tu Desarrollo Professional" - Be the Leader of Your Professional Development, is a leadership book that focuses on guiding the reader to take their careers and personal life to the next level. His book was honored with AIPEH’s Medalla de Oro – Gold Medal prize. He often participates in conferences and facilitates career coaching to individuals as well as executive coaching to business owners, start-ups, and established CEOs.
