Mona Goes to Sesame Street
In 2003, 29-year-old Mona wrote into The Oprah Show with an unusual request—her dream was to be on Sesame Street. Mona said the show was a big part of her life growing up, and she still watched it as an adult. It even inspired her career as a teacher. "I am who I am today because of Sesame Street," she said.
After a surprise phone call from Big Bird, Mona was told to pack her bags to go where the air is sweet: Sesame Street!
Mona met the whole gang: Elmo, Cookie Monster, Ernie and her favorite—Grover. "This has been the best day ever," Mona said.
