My name is Theodora Marais, I’m 22 years old and I’m French: from Lille to the north of France! I come from a cosmopolitan family, turned towards the international, by a double culture of my two parents, Franco Bresiliene by my father and Beninese Senegalo by my mother. I speak the two mother tongues of my mother. I go to Senegal regularly since the age of 5 in my maternal family. I am preparing a Master of Political Science at the University of Lille. My studies allowed me to travel in Europe: Germany, Austria, Portugal. I like to study and practice foreign languages: English, German and Portuguese. In parallel with my studies, I am an animator with children. I like to share moments with them to help them. Education is a major issue that concerns the whole of society. At 17 years old I decided to pass my certificate of aptitude to the functions of animator (BAFA). It allows me to get involved in educational projects. I like the arts of the scene, the artistic expression: the theater, the song, the dance and the music. My parents gave me the curiosity and the passion to discover our history. During my free time, I like visiting museums and historical sites in France and abroad. I am also involved as a volunteer in Lille association: Ephatha is an association that helps locals come to share meals and dress cheaply. the association also works for the alphabetization. I am proud and happy to be named Miss Heritage Global! It is a challenge that honors me and is in perfect coherence with my ambitions and my life projects!
