About Mona:
Inspired by several Canadian and American slam poets, Mona found herself in an addictive relationship with the written and spoken word. At 16 she hit the stage for the first time at Toronto’s well-known annual Open Minds Respect event, then carried on to perform in several cities around the province of Ontario. Immediately following her successful launch into the slam world Mona released her first album "it was all just a beautiful illusion" the following year, Mona hit the road for the first time on her “Dream Big Tour” as she traveled from city to city hoping to inspire people to realize that sometimes you just have to dream big.

Over the past 7 years Mona’s mission has been to work to empower young adults engaging them in discussion & to inspire change. The mission is about promoting real love, love as an action that we commit to unconditionally. This love is about safe spaces no matter your religion, social class, gender or sexual orientation. The mission is education & tolerance, no exceptions. It’s about a queer posi and body posi state of mind. The mission is mental health awareness, and letting people or yourself know that rescue is possible, that your story is important . It’s helping you turn your scars into stories.

Currently Mona, sits on the board of directors for Winnipeg’s queer film festival, Reel Pride, while committing to Cytopoetics as their graphics and marketing manager. Cytopoetics stands to provide innovative creative services to business, education and community using the power of the arts, and through spoken word poetry in particular. Like her Mona’s mission, Cytopoetics has engaged people both young and old on three continents in its mission to present the vision that inspires others to positively change the world.

Mona also organizes a monthly spoken word workshop & feature series called Poetry on Princess. In many reviews written about this young lady, one thing is quite evident, her charm and passion drive her and she is ready to take Canada by storm, as one of Manitoba's most promising, up and coming performance poets.
