Inspirational Argentinian Artist Maria Baylac Comes to NZ

Argentinian Artist Inspiring Young People to Come to New Zealand

Argentinian artist Maria Baylac has arrived to New Zealand to connect and inspire

On the 13th of October the New Zealand company Tambook brought the talented Argentinian artist Maria de los Milagros Baylac to Auckland as their brand ambassador.

Maria studied abroad as a teenager and knows from personal experience how studying and traveling changed her life forever, opening a whole new world of opportunities and ambitions, so she has been happy to be an ambassador for www.tambook.com, a platform which makes it much easier for international students to choose and book English courses in New Zealand and Australia.

To experience a student’s journey first-hand, Maria has enrolled to study English at the Worldwide School of English and will be living with a local family in homestay accommodation.

“I have been to New Zealand once before and I absolutely loved the country, thinking I would live here if I could. And I know that going abroad to study English will make such a huge positive impact on the lives of many young people, so I am thrilled to promote New Zealand as a destination for their journey and Tambook for one of the simplest and most affordable ways to make it happen”.

As an artist, Maria believes in helping people connect with their core values, creativity and happiness through the use of art and colours, so to support the cause, Maria will be giving two free painting workshops in Studio One (Auckland) on the 19th and 20th of October, with registration for the Friday workshop still open through the event page on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/events/327871637681201
