  • My status


  • Description

    I am Marguerite Lemée-Benatar, a French/English 19-year-old. I was born and bred in South-West France in a small village, about an hour away from Bordeaux. Despite being raised in France, I am bilingual as my mother is English and has always talked to me in that language. After passing my Baccalaureate and I embarked on a gap year, where I spent the first month studying for a TEFL course. I then put my new found (or at least improved!) teaching skills to the test by teaching while travelling around Africa.
    I love pottery and have been taking lessons since I was tiny, I also love drama and I am always up for a game of chess!
    I am a friendly, out-going and enthusiastic person with easy people skills and am always happy to fit in and adapt to different situations. I am particularly good with kids and have a lot of experience with them.

    I’m really into photography. I love reading, like going to music festivals. And to art galleries and museums. My house is full of pottery objects that I have been making for most of my life. I have just finished working on a big mosaic project. I'm really into history, I go on long walks with my dog, I go out with my friends and go on camping holidays with my family.
