For me, learning languages means breaking down the barriers between different cultures and people. I see speaking a foreign language as a key to a door opening up a new world of possibilities and opportunities. As a child my parents insisted I learned another language, they told me to grab any possible open window for a life beyond my own imagination.
Moving around, encountering new countries, has given me courage, inner confidence and strength. I have gained fluency in three languages, making connections with divergent people from different countries, learning about lifestyle and culture. I have discovered a new world of culture and language, opening my eyes and developing my curiosity to foreign lives of other people.
I have spent 25 years of my life in France and I can say France and French culture have played an important role in my life so far.
Outside of the classroom I enjoy a wide range of cultural and sporting activities. I practice numerous different sports like synchronized swimming, crossfit, or hand balancing.
I am a crafty person and sew a lot. I make m own clutches/purses and also cute bow ties for my cats.
I read widely about world current affairs and culture, and have a strong interest in American culture since United Staes are my new country of residence.
I am also passionate about event/wedding coordination and event design and I am currently in my final studies to get my Executive diploma in Hospitality Operations emphasis Wedding Coordination and Design.
I have found that these activities have made me a very self-motivated person with a breadth of interests and I am very excited to share my knowledge.
