Meet Monica, a Professional Hypewoman and UnDACAmented Viajera


This week we chat with the amazing hype woman Monica. We talk dancing, Men Are Trash/ Women Are Trash Too stories, and how we all became friends. So who is Monica? Monica (she/her/hers) is an undocumented DACA recipient and works as a social worker in Sacramento, CA. She loves to travel and write/rant about social justice on and off social media. Our brown girl friendship began off of Instagram, or as we call it the tinder for friends where you can use the internet to find your tribe. While she was visiting she took NYC by storm! Bringing her #FridayDanceParty and letting us join in on the streets of NYC doing the #MonicaChallenge. She is what I like to call a professional hype woman. Always there to hype up and supports Latinx creators on and off the ‘gram. She doesn’t just post online talking about human rights but goes out and does the work. In addition to her day job, she is a published writer and self-identified Femme Persona. Listen in to this amazing human’s story.
