Monica Britton 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. Soon after graduating from college, she began a successful career in the music industry where she was able to polish her management, team building and marketing skills at EMI Music and Universal Motown Records. Although her career in the music industry was accomplished, Monica felt her calling was to give more service to the community daily. In 2006, she left the entertainment industry and took a position at a major non-profit institution in Brooklyn, New York as the director of communications and special projects. She is an American Sign Language Interpreter and grief support group leader. In 2017, after much prayer, preparation and contemplation, she started Black Girl of Campus (BGOC) which focuses on helping black girls/millennial women who are the first in their family to attend college navigate the path toward higher education and building a robust career upon graduation.
