I’m Marie Brady, I’m 20 years old and I proudly hail from County Longford. I live in the beautiful countryside on my family farm. I’m an SNA in an ASD unit in a primary school, which I attended as a child, giving me the opportunity to revisit my roots and work alongside some of my old teachers. After finishing school, I decided to take a year out and help my mam care for my granny whilst also working part time and studying.
I am currently studying Montessori part time in the hope to specialise in special education in my final year to become a SEN teacher. I’m a very proactive person and hate being idle! The local community is something I’m very passionate about. I am the Irish officer for my local GAA club , I volunteer with the local special needs school and I help train the school’s girls' gaelic team. Volunteering is something which I hope to delve further into, both locally and internationally. I also teach music and dance to children. My life heavily revolves around music.
Life as a Rose is bringing me so many amazing opportunities and I’m looking forward to the year that lies ahead as the Longford Rose.
