Monica Smit is the managing director of Reignite Democracy Australia (RDA), a grassroots movement created in response to the Victorian Government’s catastrophic handling of the Covid pandemic.

RDA is now a fully established organization, employing over 12 team members who aim to understand and support the Australian community at a deeper level and tell their stories through fair and honest reporting.
Prior to establishing RDA, Monica worked as an independent journalist, traveling the world and gathering personal stories in relation to global issues. These cultural and learning experiences allowed Monica to add tremendous depth to her technical skills, learn more about global cultural and political landscapes, and facilitate enormous growth both personally and professionally.
Monica’s vision has always been to empower people by giving them a voice and providing honest, timely, and truthful information. She now strives to unite Australians in actively maintaining our individual and collective liberty, using our combined voice to encourage positive change.
