Welcome! My name is Monica — I am an educated and trained multimedia journalist and fact-checker with experience covering entertainment, music and hard news stories. I am completing my bachelor’s in Journalism & Mass Communications at George Washington University’s School of Media & Public Affairs in Washington, D.C.
This past summer, I was an editorial intern and reporter for Forbes Magazine, after starting as a contributor for the website. While at Forbes, I’ve worked on some of the magazine’s big lists, including the 2019 Celebrity 100 Issue and The World’s Highest-Paid DJs. I was also able to conduct in-depth interviews with artists, as well as factcheck magazine features and investigative pieces.
I also previously worked at Billboard Magazine, where I contributed more than 150 articles relating to music, entertainment and music industry news. At Billboard, I authored compelling music features and premieres for Billboard.com, and carried out editorial duties for the print magazine. In 2017, I was a beauty and fashion freelancer for the online magazine StyleCaster, after starting as an editorial intern in the summer of 2017. At StyleCaster, I wrote articles focusing on beauty, fashion and entertainment, attended beauty brand marketing events and interviewed prominent members of the beauty and entertainment fields.
