As a French native, world traveler and multicultural woman I was always fascinated by learning and experiencing new things. That lead me to a path of wanting to help others to grow and becoming their best potential. I believe that we are always students of life and that, the world of knowledge is infinite. I'm excited to be able to help other to do so.
