Monique Byro was born and raised in Miami, Florida. Through attending the University of Florida and acquiring her Bachelor’s degree in English in 2019, she cultivated a love for storytelling. She finds storytelling and interpretation at parks to be highly enriching and an integral part of building connections between community and land.
During the summer of 2019, she worked with the Latino Heritage Internship Program at Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie National Historical Park in South Carolina to encourage diversity at the sites. It was there that she discovered her passion for parks and decided to pursue a life dedicated to getting people of all backgrounds into the outdoors to experience the wonders of our natural resources.She hopes to use the Community Volunteer Program to spark a love for the storytelling that goes on around us every day outdoors at the Southeast Archaeological Center.
