Moniquea Marion– Toronto based actor, comedian, and writer specializing in solo sketch and character comedy.

It was inspiring to talk to Moniquea Marion. She’s talented, heartful, inspiring and working hard while doing what she’s so good at and loves. Listen all the way to the end to hear Moniquea’s character creation: Heavy Flow, as she closes down the hour with her ‘Feminist Anthem (rap) for 2019’.
In this hour you’ll also hear how she’s making waves and what trails she’s actually blazing on her upcoming web series on her very own motorcycle. We also talked about the festival circuit, acceptance, rejection, how to incorporate women in projects and how she beautifully supports other women while she is also creating roles and opportunities for herself.  Thank you Moniquea for the inspiration.
