Pink Changing Lives Honoree: Monique Coleman

Mary Kay Ash made a lasting impact and changed the world for the better. The Pink Changing Lives honoree program celebrates influential women who run the world, the unsung heroes who don’t quit, and those who break down barriers to permanently change history. 

Mary Kay has named Monique Coleman the first-ever Pink Changing Lives honoree. While she’s best known for her character Taylor McKessie in the High School Musical movies, Monique is a long-time advocate for improving the social and economic well-being of young people. The United Nations appointed her as their first Youth Champion in 2010 to give voice to young people, raise awareness about some of the most serious challenges they face and highlight the positive contributions they make in their communities.

During her tenure as Youth Champion, she embarked on a self-initiated tour of 24 countries to create awareness about and encourage people to act on the most pressing issues facing youth today. Her inspirational youth work amplifies youth voices and shines a light on the incredible individuals and organizations making a difference for young people. And her advocacy for the priority area girls and young women promoted gender equality and poverty reduction.

Mary Kay understands that empowered girls grow up to be empowered women, and Monique’s tireless commitment to youth advocacy will make changes for the betterment of future generations.

“All you need to make an impact is you: your ideas, your thoughts and your heart. That is what you need to make a difference.”
