Meet Monique Jaques! @moniquejaquesMonique Jaques is an award-winning photographer based in Istanbul covering the Middle East and Africa often focusing on health and women’s issues. Following her on Instagram offers daily adventures to intriguing people, colors, and places around the world.
Her favorite part of El Salvador: Exploring pupusas, El Salvador’s national dish – traditionally eaten at Breakfast and dinner. These tasty tortillas stuffed with ingredients such as cheese, beans, and pork are delicious. FUN FACT: El Salvador exports 22 million dollars of pupusas every day and 330,000 women make their primary source of income from pupuserías. The nearby town of Olocuilta has the Guinness Book of World Record for the largest pupusa, which is made during a yearly festival. She’s also reporting on women’s health in El Salvador and the legacy of violence.
