Hailing from Fulham, Monique was a born fighter: she was diagnosed with brain cancer at a young age. She overcame the illness and was determined to regain strength and fitness.

This drive led her to finding powerlifting in during her teenage years, taking up the sport in 2010. By November of the same year she earned selection to compete at the World Powerlifting Championships in Finland, where she would go on to surpass all expectations by securing a first place finish in the teen category.

She has since broken over 45 British and European records, en route to claiming gold medals at the British and World Powerlifting Championships.
