Monet graduated from Lane Tech High School in 2014. She joined Wright College in the spring of 2015 with the intention of pursuing a degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Monet was admitted to the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, University of California Santa Barbara and De Paul University, but decided to enroll at Wright College because it was the most affordable.

During her first semester at Wright, she was actively involved in the American Chemical Society – Wright College Student Chapter (ACS), in which she eventually became president. During her term as president, ACS Wright’s chapter not only earned the Outstanding Chapter National award, but also the ACS Green Chapter award. Monet was a CCC STEM scholar, a national ACS scholar, and a Merck scholar.

Once she completed her associate degree at Wright, she transferred to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical Engineering. While she was there, she was an Illinois i-Promise scholar, ExxonMobil scholar, ACS scholar, and Merck scholar, and was actively involved in the National Society of Black Engineers, and the National Organization of Black Chemists and Chemical Engineers. She participated in tissue engineering research, and participated in the Optimized Operations Engineering Internship at 3M in the summer of 2018.

In December of 2018, Monet graduated from UIUC with a degree in Chemical Engineering, and received a job offer by 3M.
