Monica A. Elam
Affectionately known as ‘Mo’ since the age of 12, she followed the encouragement of her mother and put all of her extra energy into writing poetry. This has been the foundation of her writing till this very day, which has been featured in Mo's Empowerment Blog and Empowering Women On The Move Series. Monica's hopes are to continue to inspire Women by a positive approach, by giving an open forum to hear compelling stories and challenges that women face. "You never know whose life you may change". Empowering Women On The Move are Successful, Career Women and Aspiring Entrepreneurs sharing their dreams, stories, inspiring, and diverse environment that encourages women to make things happen for themselves. This movement inspired Monica to write her first novel '#Secret Sundays", which is symbolic of women and the challenges they face in today's society.
As a voice and producer of "The Song Therapy Radio Show" on BlogTalkRadio over the last 5years, Monica was able to use this platform to showcase her passion for poetry as the Essence of Mo, along with providing therapy through music. Now entering a new phase of radio, Monica continues to reach the hearts and souls of music across the globe by hosting and producing her new Radio Talk Show "Soul Lixs".
Monica was born and raised in Philadelphia, and currently resides in the Atlanta area. She is the mother of three, a daughter, sister, friend, motivator, and above all, a woman of God. She also received her education from Clark Atlanta University and received BS in Psychology from Gwynedd Mercy University
