In the first-ever episode of The Hermanas Project, Angie sits down with a not-so-hidden figure in Hollywood (and her own personal mentor), Mimi Valdés. Currently the Chief Creative Officer for I Am Other, Pharrell Williams’ music and entertainment collective, Valdés opens up about her humble beginnings, her Afro-Latina identity, her journey from music journalist to one of the most influential storytellers of our time behind such films as the Oscar-nominated Hidden Figures, and why she lives by the motto, “embrace the risky.”
