“Winnie”, as her friends called her, would use chopsticks to eat her favorite meal “ramen noodles” and drink frappe with an extra shot of espresso and power aide drinks. She enjoyed watching her favorite tv show “Pretty Little Liars”, as well as having a crush on the members of the boy band “BTS.”

Preceding Faith in death is her grandfathers Ramon Garcia and Luciano Esparza.
