About Me

ABOUT ME

I'm a masters student in sociology and development economics in Paris and I grew up in Britanny (north west of France). I'm lively, easy-going and curious. I like travelling, meeting new people, sharing experiences, dancing, drinking wine/beer with friends and with good music, good food... I also like walking in the street, biking, running, reading, spending hours in a cafe, discovering new places! I'm always down to go to performances/concerts...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

During the 2012 summer, i was in Tunis for a "summer school" with tunisian students from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Tunis and for a research internship for an NGO (urbanistes du monde) on the role of civil society in urban projects. We talked a lot about tunisian politics, religion, the arab spring, and it was really interesting to have the outlook of locals. I discovered a so fascinating country and met so interesting and open-minded people ! Maybe it was not the most "incredible" or "crazy" thing of my life, but anyway, it was a really rewarding and unforgivable experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

In Paris, I can make you discover awesome and hidden places, go out with you in cool and cheap bars or just visiting some nice places...
In Brittany, I intend to make discover our famous festivals, our crazy nights on the beachs... and maybe I can learn you how to do our famous brittanny pancakes, and how to surveive under the brittanny rain :)
