MONICA JENAE: Monica Jenae is a video producer in her late 20s-mid 30s. She has a Master’s degree and a 12 month old. She is a diasporic woman who grew up in Boston, but can sound like she’s from anywhere in the northeast. She is a creative person and accessorizes accordingly. She bears her natural hair and/or a head wrap. She has a decent social media following and speaks to the SM universe like she would a girlfriend who knows the challenges of working in a white-supremacist drenched culture. She is a master of code switching. Monica Jenae is erudite, irreverent, sensitive and earnest. Her greatest fear is being misunderstood and her deepest pain point is injustice. She fears for the world her baby girl will grow up in.

See breakdown for submission instructions. Please reach out to New Rep Artistic & Engagement Manager, Sarah Morrisette ([email protected]) with any questions.
