Mouna Traoré was born and raised in downtown Toronto. Her passion for acting began at a young age when she began classes at Young Peoples Theatre. As her love for performance grew, she went on to spend her summers at Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan before attending the prestigious Etobicoke School of the Arts, where she wrote and starred in several theatrical productions.
When not spending her time in front of the camera, Mouna has been wearing many hats building her production company The Mini Films. In 2014 she made her screenwriting debut with her short film All of Me and is developing her next project Adorn, which she will also co-direct.
