When Saving Our Daughters approached Mrs. Mona Scott-Young to join their national efforts with the YELL Lunch N Learn (Youth Empowered Learning & Leadership) mentoring session to talk with their selected young girls; she graciously agreed to have a powerful voice for them across the country.
As you are all are aware- Ms. Mona Scott-Young is the co-founder and former President of Violator Management. During her time at Violator, she steered careers of artists such as Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, Maxwell and Fantasia, just to name a few. She has taken countless careers to new heights and was instrumental in securing a host of television and print commercial deals, as well as several extremely lucrative endorsement deals for her clients.
After nearly two decades of successful partnership at Violator Management, Mona followed her desire to branch out and created Monami Entertainment, a multi-faceted, boutique, entertainment company. While talent management remains at the core of Monami’s endeavors, the roster and company focus now extends far beyond music. The film and television division of Monami Entertainment has several projects in development at various networks, and is currently in production on the first installment of an Atlanta version of “Love & Hip Hop” as well as Season 3 of the original, VH1’s most popular docu-series on air.
“We are so Excited to have powerful female leaders in the industry such as Mona Scott-Young. She will demonstrate to our girls another side of her business that is sometimes not portrayed on television. This will ultimately help guide young girls who have been thru-traumatic circumstances in their lives,” stated Curtis B., Executive Director of Saving Our Daughters.
Mona’s business and philanthropic achievements have garnered recognition from a variety of prestigious organizations and media outlets, including Black Enterprise, Vibe Magazine and The Hollywood Reporter. Amongst others, she has been honored with awards from the National Association of Black Female Executives in Music Entertainment, ASCAP’s Woman Behind the Music, Marketer of the Year by Ad Age Magazine, and was recognized by the National Congress and Convention of Haitian Americans. She currently serves on the board of The Haitian Roundtable and The RSQ Foundation.
With her commitment to her career overshadowed only by her devotion to her family, Mona Scott-Young-Young has proven that with integrity, hard word and dedication, anything is possible.
