We had the good fortune of connecting with Q Monéa and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Q, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I honestly didn’t pursue being a creative or artist as my career, it pursued me. I was born to be a creative. I know that before I incarnated here that my purpose was to bring healing through artistic expression. Every time I get an idea or when I am ready to create, I feel this warmth, a heat like sensation in my Solar Plexus area. That gives me that inner knowing that I was made for this. It gives me that confidence to transmute my creative ideas into actual things.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My work is about inspiring people, spirituality and manifestation. It’s about ascension a certain level of consciousness. I am proud of myself because no matter how many failures, obstacles and set-backs I have encountered along the way, I kept going through it all, and I still continue to do so. I never really had a choice.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My favorite place in the city to go to has always been Little 5 Points/ Inman Park area and I love going to Edgewood as well. The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I am giving a shoutout to every person who was really truly there. The friends family and even strangers who have always believed in my vision without trying to get me to take a different route. The people who truly stuck by me no matter what and helped me when I wanted to give up on myself, they wouldn’t let me.
