Teresa was born in the Third Ward of Houston, Texas in 1965. Both of Teresa’s parents were hard workers who made a living as manual laborers. Teresa’s mom, Thelma, was a maid for a wealthy family and her father, Albert, worked at the car service station as a mechanic. Although Teresa’s parents were extremely hard working, they would only make just enough money each month to pay for rent and food for the entire family.
