We asked Monika about her experience and here’s what she said:

“I love Honduras due to the simple fact that my family is from there, especially San Pedro Sula, but it has had a bad reputation for a while. However, I see that things are changing and it is a great place to visit and do business. I frequently visit Honduras and I’m planning new projects in the near future. Of course, plumbing is my passion, but movies are and have always been something very special for me.”

In addition to her studies at San Diego State University, Monika studied film producing at the New York Film Academy for a short time, so as long as time permits it, she is dedicated to the world of cinema.
