Seychelles beauty queen visits special-needs students in China ( “Miss Seychelles…another world” 2015 Linne Freminot is on a two-week mission in China, where she is taking part in a series of charitable activities.

These include interacting with special-needs students from the heArts foundation. The students are those with a mentally impaired illness such as Down Syndrome and Autism.

The organization is represented in China through many centers found throughout four cities in China ̶ Beijing, Hangzhou, Shanghai, and Shenzhen.

It provides learning centers to those special-needs people and helps them to fit into the world through many activities such as developing their personal skills in painting, singing, and dancing.

Their centers also provide a place for those students to come and spend their time when their families are working during the day.

Miss Seychelles…another world 2015 visited centers located in Beijing, Hangzhou, and Shanghai.

The students were introduced to Seychelles through different classes before the visit in order to prepare them in advance. They were asked to portray their imagination of what Seychelles looks like through many different paintings which were then shared with the delegates and given as gifts.

Miss Freminot was being accompanied by the Principal Scretary for Tourism, Anne Lafortune; Seychelles Ambassador in China Vivianne Fock-Tave; the Seychelles Tourism Board’s Manager in China, Jean-Luc Lai-Lam; Senior Marketing Executive for China, Mr. Sam Yu; and Shen Yi, the Personal Assistant to the Ambassador.

The students presented the delegation with special art performances through dancing and singing activities.

A workshop session for painting was a main piece at each location whereby the students and the delegation got the chance to work together.

“This was a great chance for us to raise awareness towards the less fortunate people that live in our society today. Though being special in many different ways, they have highly-developed skills in many different areas. This gave me the chance to see a different side to the world,” Miss Freminot said.

Mrs. Lafortune was also interviewed by ZTV5 in Hangzhou.

“It is important not to only promote the beauty of our islands, but together with Miss Seychelles promote the beauty of our people by being able to bring support and awareness to groups of people with special needs throughout our society where love transcends borders," Mrs. Lafortune said.
