Angelica is a pro-life Catholic teen who has a heart to help others, launching even her own foundation to raise funds to help children with cancer.
Not ashamed of her pro-life convictions, Angelica openly shares her beliefs and faith – but has faced bullying from her peers in the worst way.
But once you hear the harsh words spoken to her by those around her – and the way she responded – you’re bound to be moved in the most incredible way.
According to Angelica, the bullying started when a pro-life piece of legislation was signed into law and pro-aborts were outraged.
Angelica was frustrated by the lack of truth being spread, so she shared a video of an abortionist describing what actually happens during a second-trimester abortion.
That was all it took for her to be shunned – and when she ran for class office, her classmates carried out a vicious campaign against her.
Live Action reported:
“My school completely turned against me [after that post],” Park told Live Action News. “I got hundreds of comments on it calling me a ‘liar’, saying that no one cared about my opinion, and on and on. They completely trashed me… Later that year, not immediately after the video, I ran for senior class president. [People from school] screenshotted my post with the hashtag #notmypresident and tagged me all over social media. They even got the football players to encourage the whole school to scratch out my name on the ballots and write in a football player’s name instead. Other people tore down my posters in the halls.” Park said the experience was “completely humiliating.”
Being a teenager is hard enough – and bullying can make it so much worse, even unbearable.
Many teens just want to be liked by their peers, so they give up their personal convictions in order to fit in with the crowd.
But Angelica refused to let the bullying cause her to give up her pro-life values – and instead she turned to God.
Holding fast to her faith, she knew God would bring something good out of the pain, as He always does in His perfect timing and unique way.
And sure enough, God used Angelica’s faith and trust in Him in the most incredible way!
Live Action continued:
“In the end, I believe that if you give that pain to God, He will turn it around… Four to five months later, I was speaking at the March for Life Youth Rally in Washington, D.C. and singing the national anthem before the March for Life, standing next to Abby Johnson and listening to the president of the United States speak.”
What a beautiful continuation of Angelica’s life story!
Our God is stronger than any bully and He is faithful if we simply trust him.
Cheers to Angelica for holding strong to her pro-life beliefs and convictions!
She could have backed down or cowered, but she remained strong knowing God would carry her through.
May He continue to use her mightily to advocate for unborn babies all over the world and help stop mothers from aborting their precious babies.
