ANGELINA WILLIAMS: GIVE THIS GIRL A CIGAR (PLEASE)ANGELINA WILLIAMS: GIVE THIS GIRL A CIGAR (PLEASE) Angelina Williams has always been a bit of an odd one. As a young child, she'd play with the boys and came home with ripped knees and filthy -- only to be told that 'girls should know better'. As a teen, she cleaned up a bit but still never quite fit in "her place". As a young professional on the path to becoming a sommelier, she took quiet pleasure being the only young, black woman in a roomful of white men her grandfather's age. Angelina is a woman that busts every stereotype you can throw at her -- purposely taking up a little more space in the old boys club. This cigar smoking, whisky drinking, rebel woman is the Director of Skylar Projects, a hospitality consulting firm. She is the beverage writer for View The Vibe Magazine and Taste My Life. She is a co-host of A Different World Podcast. In this moStory, she takes you on a roller coaster ride through the key experiences that brought her 'oddness' to the forefront of her identity and success. Get ready for Angelina... www.tastemylife.ca
