Monalisa’s Bio

Your major: Theatre Arts

Your hometown: South San Francisco, CA aka South City

Where do you live now? Salt Lake City, UT

What are you passionate about? I am passionate about many things. I am passionate about my family, traveling and anything that allows me to use my imagination to be creatively artistic.

What is your favorite class (or classes) at SLCC? I have enjoyed most of my classes so far but Comm 1560 is by far the class I get most excited about.

Which actor/actress would play you in your life movie? I would like to play myself but if I were to choose another actress it would be Vanessa Anne Hudgens. Not sure if she’s Polynesian but she’s a talented actress and a proud brown skin girl.

Where do you see yourself in five years? In 5 years, I see myself graduated college in my dream career at the same time being a business owner and a super mom of peaking teenagers.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? f I could have a superpower, it would be to have the power to rewind time. Time can fly within a blink of an eye so to go back in time to see my children as babies again or be able to talk to my loved ones who passed on again would be the best gift ever!

Something about you that other people would be surprised to know: I became a widow at 24 years old
