Monique is a Pre-K teacher’s assistant who loves to work with her hands and flex her creative muscles. Recently, she rediscovered her love for sewing and crafts, but her next project is a little bigger: helping build her own home.


Monique is especially excited to learn about the process of home construction with the Habitat Chicago construction team and customize her home to match her personality. 


“I want to be a homeowner because I want to have something that I can show ownership over and that I can design and put my style on. A home that I will cherish and feel proud that I accomplished something that I can pass down to family.” 


Give me one hour in Chicago, and you’d find me... 

“… enjoying all of the many attractions whether it be the Gospel Fest, the Taste of Chicago, Blues Festival, or Expos.”
