Zoraida Del Carmen Dreesbach is a freelance artist born in 1971 in Panama. Dreesbach grew up in an SOS Children's Village. She got a scholarship when she was 22 years to go to Austria to complete her training in hotel and restaurant specialization. However, it wasn't until 2010, when she was 39 years old that she decided to pursue her childhood dream and study illustration and computer graphics at the IBKK Bochum Painting. In her words, she sees feelings and experience as a whole and she tries to express them on the canvas.

July 14th will be the perfect occasion to meet this amazing artist and the current Ambassador of the Panama Embassy. As well, it will be a great way to discover the work of the SOS Children's Villages and hear about real histories such as the one of Zoraida Del Carmen.
