Monica's Biography

Mother Taught Her She Could Do It All:"She actually ended up working two jobs, simultaneously, and she applied to go graduate school to get a master's degree…in very, very difficult times with no help, whatsoever."

Growing Up: Stubborn, focused, directed, a kind of a "happy warrior spirit from a very early age."

Early Political Interest: At 11 years old, "When President Reagan became President in 1980, I was fascinated by his personality, by his charisma and by his message."

What To Do For Fun: Sleep, bike ride, and hike.
