Kara Jade Woman Crush Wednesday



Name, and any important facts

My name is Kara Jade aka Metis Monroe. I grew up in Winnipeg, MB originated from Moosomin First Nations. I’m a hip hop femcee, activist, model and motivational speaker.


What is something you are passionate about

All in all I’m a passionate person. About my people, my music.. my goals and motives. I strive to be someone that my little cousins (and the youth) can look up to and say if she overcame her struggles and shined, so can I.




What does empowerment mean to you

Empowerment to me is realizing who you are, what you stand for. Knowing that you deserve your dreams and being willing to do whatever it takes to achieve them. No dream is too big or too small, you just need to figure out the levels to getting there.



Tell us about what you are excited about right now

Right now I have been working on many things. After modelling for 7 years I have decided to put aside my heels and pick up the mic. What that means to me is really focusing on music this year, something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I am going to be shooting my first music video for the song “Kara Jade - Shame on You ft. Prynce” here in Toronto, Ontario. I am also working on the finishing touches of my debut EP “Miss Kara Jade - Levels” which I plan to release in July. I’m also doing a performance with Native Hip Hop Festival in August. I will also be traveling to Jamaica (again) to make moves with connections there on the island as well as make music and create a video. Plenty of announcements and projects on their way.


 What is your “word” for 2016

My word for 2016 has definitely been “Warrior” which I actually had tattooed on my spine in Plains Cree Syllabics. I live by that lifestyle, I will never give up. I will never forget where I came from or the trials and tribulations which made me who I am today.
