WCOPA NATIONAL DIRECTOR - MARYA HONDEMA
My name is Mayra Hondema and I am National Director of Holland and Belgium.
I have participated at WCOPA in 2013, 2014, and 2016, after that I became Team Manager of the two countries, and now I am National Director. I have won over 10 medals, stood in the finals for Acting, became Overall Champion for Song&Dance and won a scholarship for the New York Film Academy.
From age 5 to 12, I was a professional gymnast in the Dutch team. Due to many injuries, I had to quit, after which I found my passion for musical and theatre. I have done a 4-year Musical School, where I got the opportunity to play Abu in the musical Aladdin, Nala in The Lion King, and Elphaba in Wicked. Next to that, I have played in many local TV series and movies, and done multiple theatre shows. On the side, I take and teach dance, acting, and vocal classes. I have done several photo shoots, and teach catwalk classes.
After participating three times myself, it is my turn to help my teams enjoy this amazing experience and pursue their dreams! I am extremely excited to show Hollywood the amazing talents of Holland and Belgium!
