About Me

I am quite an energetic person and I love traveling the world, meeting people and witnessing the strength of smiles and happiness. Every opportunity to enjoy nature and have fun seems good to me ! I have to admit I probably have a pretty loud laugh too.
Apart from that, I practice quite a lot of yoga, meditation, and theater, and video-making (not all at the same time though...!).
I have been working on a project about people's and world's happiness, and I travelled around to make it : the Happy World Tour Project. You can have a look here :-) :
I am also working on various other projects, mainly around Civil society, environmental governance, community forestry and Indigenous Peoples' rights.

Bref, dans le méli-mélo, j'ai toujours préféré le méli.
