Monique Coleman is most recognized as Taylor McKessie in Disney's High School Musical franchise. However, her most significant role came in 2010 when she was appointed the first ever United Nations Youth Champion for the International Year of Youth.
With this title, Coleman self initiated and funded a global tour which spanned 24 countries in 6 months. Her aim was to raise awareness about the most pressing issues facing youth, encourage young people to foster progress in their communities and urge the international community to take responsibility on youth issues.
Following the tour, Monique has continued to advocate for young people with a strong focus on girls education, ending violence against women, and peace building through youth engagement. She has had the distinguished honor of interviewing the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Monique is the Founder and CEO of GimmeMo.com, a multi-platform community that amplifies youth voices and supports organizations who are working to make the world better for young people.
Currently, Mo is a Champion for the UN Foundation's Girl Up Campaign, a Peace One Day Education Ambassador, and a celebrity ambassador for PeaceFirst.org
Monique plays Girl Robin in the highly anticipated "Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List" and is currently on the cover of Role Model Magazine.
