Early Bio, Education, and Family
Anita Vogel was born in Tarzana, California, USA, on 24 November 1969. She is of Eastern European ancestry on her father's side and Armenian origin on her mother's. However, Vogel considers herself primarily an American but publicly acknowledges her Armenian ancestry.
Vogel's mother's family background is now known as converted Armenians. This is because during and after the Ottoman Empire's Armenian Genocide, women and children were allowed to convert to Islam instead of getting executed. As a result, some were forced to convert despite their desire to remain, Christian, while others, such as Vogel's family, only converted symbolically.
Vogel learned about the Armenian Genocide from her grandmother Sarah Bedrosian, also known by her maiden name Agzarian, 11 years old at the time.
Vogel graduated from Southern California University with degrees in broadcast journalism and political science (USC).
Vogel is married to Mark Rozells, the CFO of Fairmont Raffles Swiss Hotels. The pair has one kid, a daughter named Evangeline. According to Vogel's Twitter bio, she is also a stepmother, but there is little information about it.
