“Dear Monia, how delighted I am to meet a scholar who is bright and beautiful. What an honour to meet you. Keep in touch with me. Good luck with your thesis”
Frank McCourt – writer (1930-2009) – Pulitzer prize winner author of “Angela’s Ashes – memoir of a childhood”

“I met Monia at the première of “Angela’s Ashes – A Musical”
Monia’s clear intelligence will shine through in any situation. While, on the surface, she could be defined by her enthusiasms, there is a lot more to her. She is capable and efficient, possessed of drive, energy and determination, in abundance. And she is well able to find her way. Beyond that, Monia is definitely simpatico when it comes to dealing with people, both adults and children, a rare gift. Any organization Monia cooperates with is more than fortunate to have her in its ranks and on its side.”
Alphie McCourt – writer

“Monia’s sensitive and compassionate approach to the children and young people we work with at Glad’s House made her the perfect photographer to work with. Her photos have captured perfectly the essence of what being a Street Connected Child really is and the trials and tribulations they face. Monia has been an absolute delight to work with, her passion to her art and our NGO has made this project a joy to be involved in.
I would encourage any NGO to work with Monia if the opportunity arises!”
Vicky Ferguson – Development Director at Glad’s House

“Through Monia’s photography she has managed to capture the heart and essence of our production. People always say that it is hard to recreate a show through photographs or film but Monia’s pictures give you a sense of what it was like being there in the theatre and seeing the performance. They are full of drama, energy, character and moment – just like any good actor. She has been a tremendous supporter to our show and delightful to work with.”
Adam Howell – composer/lyricist for  “Angela’s Ashes,  A Musical” 

“I first met Monia whilst she was doing some photo-journalism in Africa.  I asked her to take some new headshots for me as mine were out of date.  Monia is truly an exquisite photographer.  During the photo shoot Monia created an enjoyable, calm and focused environment and was incredibly receptive to the style that I was looking for. Since I have published my new headshots, I have been called for castings with a much higher regularity than before.  This is entirely due to Monia’s professionalism, creative eye and her ability to capture photos that engage the viewer.  Thank you, merci e grazie mille!”
Matthew Curiner – actor

“Monia is a very talented photographer with great people skills. I’ve had the pleasure to work with her on several occasions now, and I’m always happy not only with the result of her work but also with her professionalism. I’ll definitely be hiring her again for future projects.”
Johanna Endres – Marketing Manager at Currencies Direct

“Monia has produced some truly beautiful images of the Charles Dickens Museum, managing to overcome the strange angles and limited space of our Georgian terraced interiors with ease. Her respect for our original and fragile objects meant that we could rest easy during her photography sessions and she is a pleasure to work with personally, whilst remaining extremely professional in her conduct.”
Nia McIntosh – Education and Outreach Officer at Charles Dickens Museum
