LAURA DIEPSTRATEN GARCIA, a 14-year-old from Pulp, has reached the final of the Telecinco programme, Got Talent España.

This follows on from Laura’s recent Young Newcomer award in the 25th edition of the regional government’s Premios Joven Andalucia.

Blind from birth, Laura is currently studying professional piano in Lorca (Murcia). She began winning prizes for her singing and playing  at the age of eight and took place in the International Low Vision Song Contest earlier this year.


Laura’s performance in last week’s Got Talent España won her a Golden Pass from the jury, which means she now goes straight through to the final.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
