Born and raised in Washington’s Eastside, Monica Anegbeode is a graduate of Howard University’s Africana Studies program. She has been working as a production assistant on various sets along the west coast while expanding her creative experience. Despite an involvement in theater from a young age, a college minor in Theater Arts exposed her to the production side of entertainment and she hasn’t looked back since. With interests spanning from both sides of the lens, Monica enjoys experimenting with various types of creative mediums from videos and poetry to short stories and photography. Ultimately, she intends to tell stories that help communities, especially Africans throughout the diaspora re-evaluate the way they’ve been taught to view themselves as well as each other. Monica values every opportunity she’s been presented with so far and is excited to continue collaborating and follow meaningful stories wherever in the world they may take her.
