A personal passion since childhood, football has now become another professional outlet for Monki. Having played for the Chelsea Academy as a youngster, Monki then stepped away from the sport until six years ago when she began training once again. Now, whilst also playing right wing for Dulwich Hamlet Women, Monki has been signed up as part of an ambassador squad for BT Sport and the Women’s Super League, and was invited to be a part of the hugely exciting squad announcement for the Women’s World Cup in France.
Monki’s interest in sport, and elevating women players, has led to high profile brand partnerships with Adidas, Stock X, Arsenal and Nike.
Her love of football led to an exciting opportunity at the 2019 World Cup in France where Monki was employed for the entire five week tournament, recording a daily podcast called Football Inside Out – working not only on the content of the podcast but its production too. As of October this year Monki has also been signed up as part of the panel for a women’s football web series called That’s The Tea, made by Copa90.
