Monica saw her classmates, friends, and other people who came from the same background, struggling to get into the animation and entertainment industry. She wanted to find a way to help others to give of her time and experience to others and make it easier to learn about the industry. That is when she learned about LatinX in Animation, a nonprofit organization and wanted to lend her talents in social media marketing.
