Screenwriting & Sociology Alum Fulbright Finalist

MM1 200x300 - Screenwriting & Sociology Alum Fulbright FinalistCongratulations to Fulbright Finalist Monique Mansour (Screenwriting, BA & Sociology, BA, 2012). Monique graduated from LMU in 2012 with Summa Cum Laude honors. She double majored in screenwriting and sociology and was very involved on-campus at LMU. She served as Editor-in-Chief of a student-run social justice magazine, as a Resident Advisor for two on-campus residence halls, in addition to working as a research assistant for Dr. Rachel Washburn in the Department of Sociology. Monique is currently a graduate student at the University of California, Riverside, in the department of Creative Writing & Writing for the Performing Arts. Born a storyteller, Monique thrives on finding stories hidden in everyday events. Her true passions lie with utilizing her love of writing along with her background in sociology to help ensure that diverse stories are told and appreciated. She currently serves as a Teaching Assistant for an undergraduate course in Public Speaking at UC Riverside, and hopes to use her background in writing and rhetoric as a vehicle for creative teaching abroad in Malta as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant. She is especially grateful to Dr. Stella Setka, who provided feedback on her proposal.
