She hails from Silver Spring, Maryland and holds an MFA from New York University in Film and Television with a concentration in writing and directing.

Additionally, she is one of the winners for the #NewView Film Competition with Glamour and Girlgaze which champions the voices of female filmmakers. She is also one of the filmmakers in the Tisch Other Showcase that focuses on diverse artists whose voices are underrepresented in the television industry. Last year, she directed a branded short film entitled She’s Revolutionary on the #MeToo founder Tarana Burke for Levi’s and Girlgaze. She’s been fortunate to work with Reese Witherspoon, Janet Jackson, Rosario Dawson, Chika, Rapsody and Shangela for brands like Crate and Barrel, Estee Lauder, Uber, OkayAfrica, OkayPlayer, and Hyundai. B. Monét won the 2018 Best Graduate Feature Screenplay for her feature film Q.U.E.E.N. She is a recipient of the Will & Jada Smith Family Foundation grant at Fusion Film Festival, a finalist in the Women in Film Mini Upfronts Program and a Sundance Women’s Financing Intensive Project Fellow for her first feature film Q.U.E.E.N. She was selected as one of the filmmakers in the New York Stage and Film Filmmakers' Workshop at Vassar College for her Q.U.E.E.N in July 2019. Additionally, B. Monét was selected as one of the participants in the Artist Academy with the New York Film Festival and Lincoln Center.
