Monika was born on June 3, 1992. She was born in Gargždai, but now she lives and studies in Vilnius.
Since her very birth Monika was surrounded by music. Being a little girl she used to dream of being a dancer, so even before she was four years old, her mother took her to a dance studio. However, as soon as she had started to play the piano, Monika understood that music is more important than anything else. Finally M. Linkytė began to learn the secrets of the vocal singing and that was the time when she realized that she wants to sing all her life.
“I am sure that the biggest achievement of a person is finding himself. I say that from my own experience.” – claims Monika.
Monika has participated in a number of musical contests, festivals and television projects. She feels a great respect for her vocal teachers – Kristina Jatautaitė and Rosita Čivilytė.
“Rosita is more than a teacher to me solely for her ability to listen and give an advice not only about music. I appreciate the opportunity to be taught by such a talented person, who is always ready to help you.” – Monika doesn’t save praises for her teacher.
