"I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with Mona and Shara both onstage as professional improvisers and within the coaching and facilitation realm through several adult and teen organizations. These two are a bright future for improv and applied improv training: intelligent, talented, energetic, curious, immensely pleasant and highly dependable. They have a universal ‘likeability’ stemming from their attentiveness to those around them that enables them to thrive with students of any age." - Andy Sarouhan, Head of Un-Scripted School of Improvisation
