       Monei was born and raised in Springfield Massachusetts where she spent most of her childhood years. At age 16 Monei moved to Middletown CT where she attended and graduated from Middletown High School with honors . Monei also joined the military her senior year in high school and the next day after graduation she shipped out to Columbia, SC where she attended Basic Combat Training for the ARMY.

     After completing her BCT she then went on to AIT- Advance Individual Training  for her MOS -Military Occupational Specialty Training for 42A Human Resource Specialist. She graduated her 6 weeks of AIT training and went on to serve in the military for the next 8 years. Monei in 2019 welcomed her first son Julius into the world, and although he was born 5 weeks premature and autistic with many challenges she adores and loves spending time with him. He is her pride and joy.

     Monei in 2020 then met her now Fiancé Fransisco and step daughter Naomi who she also adores and loves spending time with. Monei who is also a Usps worker takes pride in everything that she does. In 2021 she went on to finish her Associate Degree from Post University where she also graduated with honors in Business Management. In that same year Monei was struck with grief from the passing of her sons father who was a big part of their son life, but through grief came healing and perseverance to create a better life for her son and step-daughter. Monei then went into her creative space and started to put together Glamour and Glow Candles.

    She knew she always had a love and passion for candles but didn’t know really where to start so she took her time, perfected her craft and in 2023 she opened her first online Candle store Glamour & Glow Candles LLC. She loves creating fun, festive, and great smelling candles that everyone can enjoy. The inspiration for her dessert candle collection came from her children and baking, as well as her mother who loves, love, loves candles.
