Cabral graduated from high school as Valedictorian, summa cum laude and was recruited to Indiana University with a prestigious academic Wells Scholarship. While there, she double majored in French and Musical Theater, studied abroad for a semester in London, attending the British American Dramatic Academy, and then lived in Paris for a summer where she attended IES (Institute of European Studies) school.

Cabral was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Carmel Valley, California. She considers herself an “ethnically ambiguous mutt,” with a mix of English/French on her mother’s side, and Hispanic/Native American on her father’s side. She is certified as a Teaching Artist under The American Place Theater, and has worked in public schools teaching at-risk youth about books and plays and how to express themselves. Also, Angelique is quite the “Yogi” and is a certified Kundalini yoga teacher.
