 Passport

  • 1,5 cumulated years between internships and studies in England, Ireland, Spain and Sweden awoke her international sensibility.

  • Started working at Ubifrance in Mexico, then Brazil, for a total of 20 months

 Sports experiences…

  • Crazy about the very much Mainland European sport : Olympic handball (go Stade de Vanves!)
  • And in dotted lines : intensive judo while in Vietnam (go Hồ Xuân Hương!), moutain climbing, kitesurfing, trekking…
  • Rock climbing: indoor when it rains, bouldering and cliff/moutain climbing when then sun is out. Oh, and a bit of ice climbing in winter, to keep fit.
  • Mountain biking since age 14: cross-country, downhill, bmx and more recently, trial.

 …and biking in particular

  • Cycle-commute to work everyday, on her valiant “old lady ride” (quoting the bad-mouthing friends)
  • No metro pass since 2012… To deeply know Paris streets and heart
  • Memorable long-run touring bicycle trips in France : Nantes-Quimper, Mont Saint-Michel – Cherbourg…
  • Dialy use of public cycle hire, more commonly known as Vélib’ in Paris
  • Same cycling-trips km as Sego… He’s actually the one owning the km counter !

VTT Trial - Barrières à vélo

The superficial-yet-essential equipment choice

A « guitalele » (mix between a guitar and a ukulele) will accompany her throughout the journey. Nothing beats music as a mean of communicating without barriers ! Climbing shoes ! Who never know what boulder you might encounter…
