Maria’s ambition is to entertain, to sprinkle magic, to uplift others and to help the shy gain confidence in her English conversation, theatre and dance workshops.

Maria considers her book “Seventh Heaven from Seven Perspectives” her legacy… It evokes tolerance and empathy between different creeds while adding a huge dash of romance and spirituality. Written also in French, «À l’heure de septième ciel», is available on Amazon.

She is available to organise story-time soirées, where she and her (forthcoming) audio-book team can read extracts from her book, with musical and dance interludes.

She also hopes to travel the world to perform and promote her book…
