Rosario Dawson is a Puerto Rican/Afro-Cuban actress, producer and activist. She grew up between Brooklyn and the Lower East Side in the 80’s and 90’s. “It was such a brilliant education. The juxtapositions of the boroughs and upstate, living among people from differing cultures, classes, ages and more who together shared their wisdom, talents, experiences, struggles and dreams made up the place that I always felt lucky to call home,”Dawson shares.
The actress has had an incredible year with six projects ahead, including some TV mini series “The miniseries DOPESICK that I recently wrapped for HULU in VA, should be coming out at the end of the year. That’s around when Abrima and I will also be showing our latest Studio 189 collection which we are designing right now. We’ve got some great partnerships to announce soon…!” Dawson commented.
Regarding her entrepreneurial work, Rosario explains,
Studio 189 is focused on being a conscious, ethical, sustainable, no waste, fashion brand that upcycles, recycles, supports regenerative farming and is firmly rooted in defining fashion as an agent of social change.”
In addition, she is invested in Voto Latino, the voting org she co-founded in 2004. They are gearing up for the midterms and making sure people are accessing vaccine information and The Child Tax Credit.
“What is your life really but a reflection of your time -- and what I would like my time to show is that I spent it connecting with the people closest to me and that we supported each other to be happy and healthy. The present truly is a gift.”
