Marie-Claude Beauchamp is a First Moon Circle Facilitator located in Dubai. As a Shine From Within youth mentor, qualified co-active coach, First Moon Circles facilitator, and sexologist, I have had the privilege to work closely with other knowledgeable people in the field. I have a teaching permit but I like to keep the value of informal education close to my heart. I am a strong believer in the value of girls’ and women’s empowerment to make the world a better place for all. This has been the core element of the projects I have been involved with; in Canada and in different countries in Africa.
