She is in love with a mechanic named Noel (played by Rocco Nacino).
While working for the realty company, Joyce is abused and raped by Ronaldo Castillo (played by Christopher de Leon). When he accidentally pushes her down the stairs, he thinks that he killed the girl.
However, Joyce manages to survive but she suffers from selective amnesia and becomes known as Lea.
Beautiful Strangers replaced the show Let The Love Begin.

As she begins to live her American dream, Leah faces a big problem as she finds out that her visa is about to expire. To remain living in the United States, Leah makes an agreement to marry Clark, who is an American citizen, in exchange of money that he greatly needs.
