Our Founder, Singer/Songwriter/Philanthropist Monet Bagneris founded Monet Cares as a means of combating the childhood obesity epidemic and poor decision-making plaguing the youth as a result of low self-esteem and self-confidence. Having received her degree in Health Promotion & Disease Prevention Studies from the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine and informed the community about healthy lifestyles during her service as Miss City of Inglewood and Miss Los Angeles County for the Miss America Organization, Monet desired to use the knowledge and experience she had to create a platform that empowers youth and their families, transforming their mindsets and goals toward healthier and happier quality lives through Monet Cares.
