Monica Tonlé

Monica first got involved with ICL through their Black Youth Leadership program. Growing from student to facilitator to event organizer, Monica has always been involved in fighting for a better world. She does it in her neighbourhood as a member of the executive youth organizing board or in her cultural community as Vice-Chair of the Yemba NCR youth faction. If you don’t find her working, reading a book or painting, you're probably not looking at the right place.
