Yasmina F. Edwards
There is nothing conventional about Yasmina F. Edwards. Her experience defines her as a cross-cultural translator. Just after graduating from Business School in Valence, France, she moved alone to New York, and went on to build a business in creative strategy, talent management and production – EGMNY - following fifteen years in the corporate world.
Yasmina is a black woman who paved her own way to marry the arts and the corporate world together. She built her company with no connections to the entertainment industry. Then and now, her interests have been the driving force behind each project that she takes on and the talented doers that she represents. She always wanted to pursue her passion for Africa – and this has been a central focus of her narrative and work.
In recent years, she has been working with a roster of international clients among whom are musicians, film directors, actors and tech companies. Her role is in building strategic partnerships and providing clients with support for their own business development within a stimulating environment that helps to develop their brands.
Fluent in English, French, Spanish and Yoruba, Edwards is acutely aware of the unique value which intercultural communication brings to the table, often noting: “the world has become a global platform and it is critical to be able to identify subtleties among markets.”
Yasmina currently resides between New York, Los Angeles, Paris and Lagos, while developing a variety of original multimedia projects.
