Marie is a British Sign Language interpreter with over a decade of experience in multi-sensory communication services. She recently went viral after posting videos of herself signing well-loved children’s stories online, to entertain and educate families during the lockdown.
Marie’s mantra is that everyone can communicate, but that they might just do it a little differently - which reminded us of how Fairy Hope used rainbows to tell her friends they weren’t alone. Just like Hope, Marie spreads messages of kindness and community with her hand-talking, which we think makes her a real-life rainbow fairy!
