Early life, family, education
Shantal Monique was born on 2 April 1989, in Seattle, Washington State, making her 34 years old today. Shantal spent her early years near Seattle, dreaming of a career in modeling and acting. At 19 she moved to Arizona, where she worked multiple jobs to sustain her pursuit. Two years into her journey in Arizona, Shantal received a significant opportunity that would propel her into the spotlight, as she was invited to pose for Playboy.
In addition to her pursuits in the modeling and the entertainment industry, Shantal Monique also prioritized her education. She successfully completed an Associate of Science degree, then later enrolling at Arizona State University, where she pursued studies in Bio-Chemistry.
She has kept private regarding her family, and hasn’t revealed any information on her parents and any siblings.
Despite her deep passion for science, she eventually turned her love for modelling into a thriving career. This led her to frequently visit Los Angeles and pose for various lingerie magazines, events, and photoshoots. In 2014, she received the title “Playmate of the Month,” from Playboy South Africa, and went on to earn the title “Playmate of the Year.” At this point in her life, she began to realize the potential of her choice, and put her education on hold, as she moved to Los Angeles for further contracts.
She continued to work hard on her career, and was featured as the cover model for the January/February 2016 edition of Playboy, which also featured her in various photoshoots on their YouTube channel, most notably “Shantal Monique | Playboy’s Amateur Girls,” and “Shantal Monique – Arizona Dream.”
