Interview with artist, activist, and entrepreneur Olivia Charmaine
Hi Olivia Charmaine, please tell us a little about you?
I’m a film & TV producer that recently started my own production company called Black Monarch Entertainment. Though I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, I was born in Los Angeles, and a lot of my dad’s family are California natives. I always felt pulled to Los Angeles and the entertainment industry in particular, even at a very young age. I mean, my fifth birthday was Hollywood-themed, and I apparently asked my mom to teach me cursive in preschool because I had a dream where I stepped out of a limo and didn’t know how to sign my autograph. If that doesn’t sound like a calling, I don’t know what is!
