About Monique Spain

Hey guys! My name is Monique Spain, and I was a transfer student at William & Mary. I graduated with an A.S. degree from Northern Virginia Community College in May 2014, and I was absolutely thrilled to spend my final two years of undergraduate study as a part of the Tribe community!

I was born in California, but have lived in a total of five different states and two European countries. My father’s career as a Marine has meant lots of moving for our family! We have been living in the DC suburb of Arlington, VA since February 2009, but beforehand we lived in Brussels, Belgium for four years. I consider Brussels my hometown for many reasons, but mostly because it is where I grew the most as an individual and also had some of the best experiences of my life.

On campus I was a proud member of Students Helping Honduras and also served as the Gender Equality Block Leader for SchoolHouse Block. In my free time I enjoy reading, watching re-runs of Parks and Recreation, scrolling through Tumblr, and of course spending time with my wonderful family and friends.
