Hi! I am Monica Niá Jones, Miss Windy City 2022! I was born and raised in the vibrant city of Chicago where I attended the Frances Xavier Warde School and the Chicago High School for the Arts. In 2018, I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies with concentrations in Business and Special Events from Arizona State University. Most recently, I have acquired my Certificate in Marketing and Communications for Fashion & Luxury Brands from Elle Magazines education partnership at the Complutense University of Madrid. I became passionate about the arts and have become a very accomplished violinist and dancer at a young age. I am currently a Partner for TruLyfe Inc. Corporation where I established the legal C-Corp entity for the purpose of franchising HOTWORX locations in the Chicagoland area. In early 2020, I became Miss Chicago and placed 2nd Runner Up at the 2021 Miss Illinois Competition as Miss Windy City and to be going back to blow the city of Marion away at the 2022 Miss Illinois Competition. My Social Impact Initiative is Music Uniting Souls in Communities (M.U.S.I.C.) where I promote the importance of diversity and exposure within classical music, by bridging the gap between various communities by one common interest, music.
