We had the good fortune of connecting with Angelica M. George and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Angelica M., what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk taking is everything in life. Despite what you think you take a risk everyday you wake up and walk outside. It’s levels to risk but living freely is always going to be a risk. Some of my biggest risks was moving to Atlanta not once but twice. The second time I moved to Atlanta I honestly could have given up and said “you already tried this so why do it again” but you have to take the risk you never know until you’ve done it. Everytime I introduce myself I’m taking a risk. I don’t know how I’ll be perceived but I would rather find out later than live with regret. From me starting my podcast “Ain’t No Filter” that was a big one , me being a solo podcast host was new for me. All of the hosting I ever did I always had a partner. I took so many risks and received the reward. Some of the risks I’m taking now I may not see the reward until years from now and I’m okay with that. I continue to take risks with content creation whether I’m directing or producing.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
So I’m a content creator, multi-hyphenate for sure. I produce and direct original content; short form digital as well as films. I also host a podcast called “ Ain’t No Filter” we’re you can get a good laugh and get educated on a topic. Nothing in life is easy, nothing about being creative is easy. Revisit your goals until they become actions. I want the world to know I’m never gonna stop fighting for the vision of the underdogs to be recognized.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
OMG wow this is hard I don’t really go out anymore. If you catch me outside it’s some type of networking event or a birthday. When I was in college I went out a lot more but a lot of those places are gone. I mean I guess a good vibe on Peter St , Edgewood so much has changed now.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Whew so many people deserve credit and a shoutout. I must say I’m grateful to any and everyone who’s been a part of my life whether it was a short moment or not. I’m a firm believer that everyone that comes into your life will play a part in it. If I’m going to name some people a course my MAMA and a countless number of family and friends who put on for me without question. I must give love to my hometown Milwaukee. I love that city so much!
