To discover everything I can: people, countries, etc.
I am a really curious person who enjoys to learn new things and meet new people. I am a little bit shy, but when I get to know a person, or when I really feel good with someone, I really like to talk.
I am fascinated by people's story and dreams, and love to discover it. I think that every life journey deserves to be tell and listen at.
I studied to teach French as a second language and I work as a researcher for university teachers. Since I work from home, I can plan my days as I want. And I can also travel more easily, which is something very great!
The only problem is that it is a rather lonely work, and I really miss the contact with people. So when I don't work, I like to meet friends or to meet new people.
