Monica Tonlé

Placement Student

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.
