Realizing the need for musical entertainment, she soon found herself with a strong desire to expand her musical horizons.

Standing and following (#1 Street DJ) DJ LL learning the basics and LL telling Munk and others "3 months she'll be good to go" . After watching many other DJ’s spinning in different night clubs with so many different styles and types of music, DJ Munk decided she wanted to shake things up a bit. In 2008, she purchased DJ equipment, but had no intention of playing it out, - until she started getting numerous repeat offers for gigs. Munk began DJing local house and private parties, weddings and charity events, then in 2009, she ventured into new territory and teamed up with DesDem Dj’s.
