About Me

Angélica Cordero is a story cultivator, having worked in marketing & communications across a variety of industries for over a decade. Given her broad interests in all things story & on set experience, Angélica’s work spans the development process, from concept through script to packaging with an emphasis on research, structure, & potential narrative continuity across multiple platforms. As a marketing professional, Angélica’s leadership on digital & field campaigns has garnered local & statewide success for reputable brands like Dr. Pepper, Verizon Wireless, Ford, and Wendy’s. She also produced a podcast & an award-winning short film for a private architectural firm recognized nationwide by the American Institute of Architects in 2018. Since 2014, she has volunteered with TEDxSanAntonio as Programming Chair, now Licensee, leading event programming & planning, working with organizers, speakers, & advisors. As a result, over 180 recorded talks have been produced, earning more than 5 million views on YouTube. When not working on her commitment to read 100 books in the year, she can be found developing her podcast called The Persistence (more below), picking through archives for her television project dedicated to sharing the home front stories of homicides that occurred in the backdrop of war, or supporting research for female-driven, queer friendly history focused multimedia projects.

The Persistence is an insightful podcast that aims to offer a fresh perspective on history through an intersectional lens, exploring the hidden connections and interwoven remarkable narratives about how women, gender, and the queer community have shaped history and inspired transformative change.
