Mother Teresa was an Albanian-Indian, Roman Catholic Nun and Missionary.
Born in Skopje, Macedonia on the 26th August 1910, Mother Teresa is known in the Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta. She lived in Macedonia until the age of 18, before moving to Ireland and then to India where she lived most of her life. At the age of thirty six, Mother Teresa felt the call from God to help the poor and suffering in India. Her work was very difficult and she often went hungry herself while trying to help other people who were suffering, but she never gave up. She was an amazing role model to others.
In 1950 she started a charity know as The Missionaries of Charity to help the hungry, the homeless, the sick and the blind. Through her hard work and dedication, she was honored with the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979.
Sean Devereux was like Mother Teresa in many ways. He worked as an aid worker and a missionary in Somalia, dedicating his life to helping other, just as she had done. Sadly he was killed in 1993, while working for the charity UNICEF. Because of his kind work and dedication to helping people in need, he has become an important role model, just like mother Teresa.
