If you don’t remember from season one, Angelica Mata is a digital marketer who got into her field because of an interest in film. This passion inevitably led her to pursue a Film degree at the University of Texas at Austin. To this day, she is captivated by the profound effect created by the various elements that comprise a film. These emotions create lasting memories that are sure to be shared amongst people. As and TEDxSanAntonio speaker curator and current Programming Committee chair, she understands the importance of sharing someone’s passion and the story that comes with it. Her fervent belief that rich relationships can be built through story resonates in her dedication to fostering user engagement using social media. Culled from experiences over the course of her career from Apple Retail, freelance work as well as her role with Overland Partners, she has developed a keen understanding of how technology and storytelling work together to connect with an audience.
Angelica was my co-host at this year’s SXSW festival where we led a discussion regarding how we can end the stigma regarding mental health in the work place. In the episode we discuss what we learned, what still needs to happen, and what SXSW can do to answer the call. We also discuss what we liked about Season One of the show and what we hope will be better in the episodes that follow.
If you enjoy the show’s season premier, I’d love it if you’d subscribe and review what you heard. You can find us on iTunes, Google Play and Stitcher. Both can help the show pick up and continue to carry forward while the show is off the air. Also, you can always find me on Twitter @Renoe or email me at the contact us page of the website or stream season one on our episodes page.
I want to thank you all for returning to the show. As we work through this year’s season together, I hope you’ll all remember that only you get to define what it’s like to be you.
