hi, i’m mona.

Stringing words and ideas seamlessly together to create a visual image in a person’s mind is a bit like magic. As a kid, I believed being able to do this so carefully and beautifully was unparalleled. Storytellers create worlds and entire universes, and then beckon others to experience the journey alongside them. How can turn away from attempting to hone a superpower like that?

I believe that at the heart of any great story is a person who genuinely
cares. I’m constantly learning that the best solutions come from being able to critically define problems and opportunities, and focusing on the people you’re creating for. 

I create because there are some things I don’t say out loud. With my endless stuttering of um’s and I don’t knows, and the gnawing hesitance I feel at times when it comes to speech—I somehow seem to find a way to put my thoughts onto paper instead. My ultimate dream is to hopefully be able to create stories that inspire others.

If you’re interested in my work or writing, I would love to chat or even meet up for a cup of coffee or tea (since stories are best told in person)! Feel free to shoot me a message here or at monassaid@gmail.com.
