We had the good fortune of connecting with MeMe Hermitt and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi MeMe, how do you think about risk?
I think life is about taking risks. No risk, no reward. I’m not afraid to put myself out there. That may come with some rejection, I may make some mistakes. But throughout the whole process, I’m able to learn. Learn about myself and about my craft. It’s all about growth.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m a media personality. I host a weekly show on Instagram where I interview people of interest and/or people I feel others should know of. This has been an amazing journey. There have been several setbacks. I’ve heard the word no more times than I can count. What sets me apart is my ability to never quit. Even when it’s not going well. I just regroup and try again.
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?
I would take them to Wynwood, Miami, Florida. My city is a melting pot of so many different cultures. There’s art, food, and music. Wynwood is a meeting spot for all of them. And then we would definitely hit the beach.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to shoutout my son, Prince. My person! He’s the reason why I’ll never ever give up. Shoutout to my soulmates, Faith, Tiffany, Sheena, Renee, Nykeah and Brittney. Without you all, there is no me. The push and encouragement you guys offer is immeasurable. Thank you eternally! Lastly, my mother! My rock! Thank you for being the place where I can take rest! Love you Mommy!
