Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
“I’ve dedicated my career to the entertainment industry since I was 17 years old, starting as an actor,” said Windi Washington. “But I fell in love working behind the scenes, establishing a very extensive resume that isn’t publicized as it should be — managing talent, celebrities, and brands. I never was the type of person that was the loudest in the room, I was just the person that cared about getting the work done, and proudly.” Washington has since recently landed roles in a number of television series in 2021, including American Gangster: Trap Queens (BET+), and Trace (VIM). She has also landed roles in feature films slated for release dates for winter 2021 and 2022, to be announced.
