Monique Jackson


Hello, my name is Monique

I studied at the University of the Witwatersrand, in South Africa and graduated in 2020. Since graduating, I completed my community service at Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital. I later worked on a nature reserve at a non-profit organisation based in the Mpumalanga Province as a volunteer to promote and provide access to information for Speech Therapy and Audiology in underdeveloped schools and drop-in centres in the rural communities.

I strive to create awareness of the importance of Speech Therapy by establishing relationships with the local hospital for referrals and potential screening opportunities, as well as facilitating workshops for children, parents, teachers and organisation staff.

I am passionate about connecting people by finding their voice, no matter the form it may come in. As such, my experience thus far has allowed me to better understand people from different backgrounds, while being sensitive to their diversity and personal circumstances.

In my spare time, I enjoy exploring new places, trying different foods and spending time with friends and family. If my best friend were to describe me, I think they would say that I laugh a lot, I often say silly things, I do random dances but I am compassionate, joyful and ambitious.
