Angela Simmons is that fabulous girly girl that we’ve come to love from watching her on her family’s hit MTV show, Run’s House, to her equally fabulous older sister Vanessa, and of course, her hip hop royalty lineage. She’s stepped out of her family’s shadow and making a name for herself in the fashion industry, curating content in the entertainment industry, running Pastry Footwear with her sister, and now starring on the new WE tv reality series, Growing Up Hip Hop. Now you can add philanthropist and educational visionary to her resume.
Angela is bringing her talents to South Beach Friday, February 19 through Sunday, February 21 to host I AM South Beach, a philanthropic weekend with SoBe Lifestyle Group to celebrate Angela’s success and to raise money and awareness for the Mourning Family Foundation’s Overtown Youth Center Scholarship Fund. In existence since 2003, The Overtown Youth Center co-mingles academic and recreational activities for grade school youth in Miami. The organization’s mission is to inspire and empower youth and families by fostering hope through enrichment services.
