Portrait of Monica

Monica

Monica is a youth advocate and social worker. She is co-founder of the Afro-Australian Student Organisation, a mentor in the Immigration Museum’s Sarah Myer Leadership Program, a member of the Multifaith Multicultural Youth Network, and youth advisor for the Ghana Association of Australia.

In 2015, she was a finalist at the National Youth Awards for Youth Leadership by the Department of Education and Training.

Monica is passionate about advocating for multicultural youth to be engaged in youth led organisations, education and employment. She wants to make a positive change to inspire and work directly with other young people to change the perceptions society holds about multicultural youth – and hopefully make the world a bit easier for the next generation to live in.
