OTHER ACTIVITIES
She has founded the BenitezVEN foundation, which aims to promote fencing and physical activity among children in Venezuela. "My first home was in the favelas of Caracas, and my work in Venezuela is based right there. For me it is neither dangerous nor complicated. My foundation promotes our sport by organising fencing exhibitions for the children. We set up a piste and allow them to play. We also bring clothes and food. Sport is always good for children. I want to help them realise all the good things that fencing can bring them."
