Let's Work Together: Going to College  Surviving College  Life After College


What's My Why?

Monica Britton-West was born and raised in New York, living most of her life in Nassau County, Long Island where she attended elementary, middle and high school. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University at Albany (NY). While at UA she served as a Student Assistant and Resident Assistant, had a work study position for two of her four years, volunteered as a news reporter for the campus radio station, wrote for the monthly news-zine for African American students and, joined a sorority.

Black Girl On Campus (BGOC) is here to help African-American girls & young women who will be first -generation college students win! My goal is simple, to provide the necessary tools that make a difference in the eyes of the admissions teams at universities, navigate the college landscape with ease and take everything you’ve learned upon graduation & create a career path where you’ll make a difference, have an impact and live the life you dream of.  


What/Who is BGOC?

Any African-American girl who will be/is a first-generation college student and needs a community to help her realize her dreams.
