When asked to describe this Playwright/ Radio Personality, three of many words stand out: motivated, dedicated and unique. She is motivated to fulfill her dreams, while raising her most prized possession, her son Allen Donald Junior, also known as A.J. Miss Monique proclaims her “love for it all truly began to be priority when I started Raisin AJ, he just made it all worth it,” and her dedication to his well being and this craft is impeccable. She is such a unique, driven individual and instantaneously became a popular hit in the Central Savannah River Area, known for inspiring others to ‘keep it real’, Monique made sure she did not give up on her dreams, which made her fight harder to accomplish what she wanted. Although Miss Monique saw her dreams at an early age, her vision seemed vague until September 2010, and that is when God sent many of His Angels to lead her into doing His will. With that being said, doing God’s Will will always be her prayer, as well as impacting lives in a positive way. During the summer of 2011, Miss Monique and Raisin AJ Productions premiered their first stage play, “Don’t Tell Daddy,” which became an Off Broadway hit production. The stage play brought awareness to HIV and Alcohol abuse, changing lives of individuals in the process. Before this production Miss Monique created a Big Brother, Little Sister relationship with award-winning Playwright David E. Talbert and he then encouraged her to “hang in there” and that “with lots of time and work, eventually it will get easier.” He also assured her that “having a polished and professional play is a must,” giving her advice that will last throughout the duration of her career. David, as Monique calls him, has adopted her as his mentee and continues to help her and give her promising advice. Miss Monique did not stop at her last production because she is serious about changing lives one message at a time. God places different issues in the world on her heart and allows her to write about them, be it from experience with herself or someone she knows. This latest production touches close to home for Miss Monique, but she does not mind sharing her story if it will help her, help someone. Monique, who self acquired the ‘Miss’ as a young child, has more concerns to bring forth to her community and soon enough to the world.
