In 2010, Monica suffered a life threatening illness called “Steven Johnson Syndrome” which almost took her life but God had other plans for her. Even though, Monica battled her way out of a medical induced coma for twelve days she continues to face the battles of being a survivor of Steven Johnson Syndrome. In 2014, Monica took courage steps to change her life when she decided to retire from the United States Postal Service and step out on faith to be her own boss. Monica was no ordinary woman that had to overcome being on food stamps, discriminate on the job, encounter deficiencies with her home, and going through the legal system without a competent attorney. Through Monica’s adversities in 2014, she decided to take the opportunity of being a special guest on the Mike’s Variety Hour to speak some “Real Talk”. The guest appearance on the Mike’s Variety Hour launched the vision for Real Talk with Monica.
