From an early age, Monique was attracted by performing arts, and joined the Workshop Theatre School of Dramatic Arts and made appearances in more than 15 plays. She then made her first commercial appearance, and continued to be a part of the Southeast region’s entertainment industry.

Although she was already a celebrity, Monique didn’t neglect her education and went to Heathwood Hall Episcopal School, and after matriculation enrolled at DePaul University in Chicago, where she attended the Theatre School and earned a BFA degree in acting in 2002.

Monique made her screen debut in the short film “Mother of the River” in 1995 , and then featured in the made for television film “The Ditchdigger’s Daughters”. She didn’t have much success until the mid- 2000s, when she was cast as Mary Margaret in the TV series “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” (2005-2006), and as Leesha in the made for television film “The Reading Room” (2005), starring James Earl Jones, Joanna Cassidy, and Douglas Spain. The following year, her life and career turned for the better, when she was selected for the role of Taylor McKessie in the first installment of the musical comedy drama “High School Musical”, starring Zack Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale, a role which she repeated in the sequels “High School Musical 2” (2007), and “High School Musical 3: Senior Year” (2008), which only increased her wealth to a significant degree. The particular role had put Monique on the Hollywood map, and since then she has secured several bigger roles; these include the lead role in the TV sci-fi adventure series “The Fourth Door” (2015), then the lead role in the TV comedy series “Here We Go Again” (2016). Furthermore, she will star in the comedy drama “We Are Family”, which is scheduled for release late in 2017.

Aside from acting, Monique is also a renowned dancer; she was teamed up with professional partner Louis van Amstel in the third season of the TV dance competition series “Dancing with the Stars”, and the two finished as the fourth couple, which also added to her wealth.

Regarding her personal life, Monique has been married to Walter Jordan since 2012. She is a well-known philanthropist too; she collaborated with dosomething.org to create a motivational video tutorial “Do Something U”, through which she has helped youths to learn the best way to use social media to raise awareness of their ideas and endeavors.

Quotes

#Quote
1I was pissed. I really was. You have to split, bend over backward, touch our toe to our heads to get recognized. The men walk out there, sit down and have a woman dance around them and get higher scores.
2As an African American actress there are people who have been staples in my life that opened a door that I can walk through. I hope that I can have that impact.
3When I get recognized, every time feels like the first time.
4I love the idea that somebody is going to compare me to my character or think that I am like my character when they see me. I feel like that is a role that I am willing to fulfill. I think it is important for girls to see movies where it is not all just about 'the boy' or it's simply being about 'the relationship' or 'Am I pretty enough?' or 'Am I cute enough?'. Here [the focus] is something that has to do with 'Am I talented enough?' or 'Am I smart enough?'. I love that. It is a big responsibility but it's exciting.
