Mina G definitely knows what it means to be a team player and to put in the long hours until the scheduled work is complete. She continues to use her creativity to learn and grow in
every experience, enjoys working hard and is very passionate about The Arts and sharing her wealth of knowledge with others. Her career has been diverse yet held together by that connecting strand of implementing a vision not only in her career but as well as in her personal life. In this multi-media world, one must be passionate, quick on their feet to resolving stressful situations, a great leader, detailed oriented, receptive to constructive criticism and relentless to put the hard work in.
The motto Mina G would end every radio show with and lives by… “Don’t become obsolete before your significance becomes relevant!”
