Mardginia was born in São Tomé and Príncipe, in the District of Lobata and started working as a teacher at a very young age. Theater has always been his great passion (…) he dreamed of doing a master’s degree in theater, but the possibility of studying in São Tomé and Príncipe was very difficult.
As part of the celebrations for the 30th anniversary of Cooperation between the PALOP-TL and the European Union, animated videos and comic strips were produced that illustrate the success stories of the projects implemented within the framework of the Cooperation of Portuguese-Speaking African Countries and Timor-Leste with the European Union (PALOP-TL/UE). The success stories were presented at the ceremony that took place in Brussels, capital of the Kingdom of Belgium, during the Extraordinary Ministerial Meeting of Cooperation between the PALOP-TL and the European Union.
This is the last of three comic strips and tells the story of Dr. Mardginia Pinto, and how she, with the help of a PROCULTURA scholarship, managed to fulfill her dream of completing a Master’s Degree in Performing Arts at the University of Évora, in Portugal.
