Mona Prophete is the CEO and founder of MsMonaSpeaks! To most who know her work, especially the thousands of youth she has spoken to, inspired, counseled and worked with over the years, she has affectionately come to be known as “Ms. Mona”. Ms. Mona is Haitian-American and grew up in Queens, New York. A motivational speaker, trainer and life coach for both adults and adolescents, she is quite passionate about her work and seeks to bring knowledge and enlightenment to all she encounters. Equipped with a natural proclivity to engage others, her newest endeavor includes the launching of MsMonaSpeaks!, an organization focused on bringing valuable and informative workshops and trainings to others.
With over 15 years of experience encouraging and motivating our youth in a variety of different roles, her work with adults is now centered around the same premise. Naturally altruistic, over the years she has also volunteered her time with various organizations and has always sought to be vital in the amelioration of our society. A breast cancer survivor, Ms. Mona often speaks on this topic and how her battle proved to be a life changing experience. Ms. Mona received her Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts from the College of New Rochelle and her Master’s Degree in Social Work from Adelphi University. In addition to this, she is also licensed in Restorative Practice and is mentor certified through Big Brothers, Big Sisters and Fordham University. Ms. Mona believes that motivation, tools for success and applicable knowledge should be accessible in an engaging, upbeat and in depth way for all.
