Half French half Brazilian, Tiphanie was born in Paris, and has a Master degree in Foreign Trade, Foreign Languages and Translation. Over the years, she has worked for NGO’s such as CCFD, Ford Foundation, Autres Brésils and Filhos do Marajó. Two years ago she decided to drop everything and move back to Brazil. She became a french teacher and met Casa Amarela through a project she worked on, for France Télévisions. She has now been working at Casa, where she started as a volunteer, for a year and a half as one of the two project managers. Working at Casa Amarela and more importantly with children has been a life changing experience, but also the best way to reconnect with her roots and help bringing what is most important, art and education.
