When she is at home Mona is heavily active in all facets of her community as founder and director of Feather & Anchor, a talent management agency serving performance artists from the countries BIPOC Communities. Over the past 11 years Mona’s mission has been to work to empower communities to engage in discussion. Her Work audaciously & unapologetically centres around themes of identity and race politics, Gender and sexual diversity, and femme visibility. She’ll often say “it’s a political statement just to leave home some days”, but if her written and performance work is indicative of anything, it’s of a person who has seen a world of pain love and growth, who writes, performs and navigates the world in a way that is compassionate towards humanities search for truth and justice.
