Marco Borsato announced that Michaela DePrince (21) will be his new colleague at the War Child ambassador team. Michaela is a Sierra Leonean-American ballet dancer and has been dancing for the Dutch National Ballet since 2013.
“War Child is incredibly proud to have Michaela as a new ambassador”, said Marco.
Michaela added: “My goal is to help war children all over the world. I know from firsthand experience what war does to children. I would like to show them that they are not alone. Luckily I have had a lot of chances in my life. Therefore I am really grateful. Now I would like to help by giving something back.”
In the coming years War Child wants to help even more children in the countries where they are active. War Child’s work is more needed now than ever before. Almost 250 million children live and grow up in war zones. The ambassadors have a priceless value in creating attention for War Child’s work.
