Mounia Aram is a professional of the animation industry with more than 18 years’ experience. She was born in Casablanca, Morocco and she grew-up in France. As a kid, Mounia had a passion for animation, video games… and Africa. After oriental languages studies in Paris INALCO, she had the opportunity to join ShoPro Entertainment in 2003, a company specialized in Japanese animation based in San Francisco.

During her career, she noticed that African animation was not present enough in the International scene. That’s why she decided to launch the Mounia Aram Company in 2019, a company specialized in African animation. She launched her own company not only as a business leader but moreover to defend her belief: Africa is a continent that should matter.

She just launched her Non-Profit Organization A.C.T (African Creative Talents) that will be opening Animation & Gaming Schools in Africa. She is a member of the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
