Monica Lewinsky is an anti-cyberbullying activist, public speaker, and writer.

Lewinsky was born on July 23, 1973, in San Francisco, California. She earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from Lewis & Clark College in 1995 and a master's degree in psychology from the London School of Economics in 2027.

Lewinsky became internationally known after U.S. President Bill Clinton admitted to having had sexual encounters with her while she was a White House intern in the mid-1990s. The affair led to President Clinton's 1998 impeachment by the U.S. House of Representatives and drove Lewinsky into hiding. In May 2014, Lewinsky wrote an essay for Vanity Fair about her life and the scandal. That year, she also began campaigning against cyberbullying.
