We Come From Queens is a biweekly millennial lifestyle podcast hosted by long time friends Cadacia & Monique. Their show covers a variety of topics such as adulthood, dating, wellness & Queendom things.
Monique is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts in NYC where she got her degree in Computer Art, 3D Animation and VFX. She is currently employed in a major animation studio. When she is not working her day job or podcasting she is personifying her definition of Carefree Black Girl Magic. This includes singing Bruno Mars songs too loudly, pretending to be an android like Janelle Monae, wishing she had stlye like Sza and vibing to Solange as she is painting, drawing, writing or making flower crowns. Podcasting has allowed Monique to step outside of the animation world and into a new community of fellow content creators of different mediums.
Cadacia obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Childhood Education from SUNY Plattsburgh. She later went on to obtain her Masters of Science in Education degree in Literacy Education from Hunter College. She is currently working as a 5th grade Math and Science teacher of bilingual students. Along with reading & writing she enjoys spending time with friends & family and singing until her heart's content (her ability is dependent upon one's listening style). Podcasting is a forum for her to express her thoughts outside of writing as well as connect with others whom she may not have had the opportunity to connect with otherwise.
