Monique Mohamed is 39 years old and was born and raised in Cape Town. She finished 11 years in school. She always dreamed about becoming an artist, but never saw herself coming so far. She also has a passion for planting vegetables and flowers. Every Tuesday she goes to the church in Observatory where she attends the Sun Shide Leader for mothers and babies. She does needle work, beading and so much more there. She was told about Mhani Gingi and Fettle Fox Clay Design by her Sun Shide Leader. She is now learning how to make bowls, letters from the alphabet and more at Fettle Fox Clay Design. She finds it difficult, but loves it. She especially likes working and creating things with her hands. Her experience taught her to keep learning and to not stand still.
